Just finding out about our Community Story Hour?
Join us each week as our special guests from around the borough share both a story and how they help to keep our community safe, happy, and healthy! We will also include themed activities as well as suggestions for objects and artwork to put in your windows, or draw on your sidewalk, as part of a weekly community scavenger hunt. Our family-friendly program is open to all ages.
