1000 Books Story Time

Join us as we count towards 1000 Books! Ages 2+

Stories, music and movement activities. The books we read count towards your 1000 Books Before Kindergarten list.  Not enrolled? Get a kit at any branch or signup online at

These programs will probably be inside in the Children's Room, but if we have mild enough weather, we may instead be out on our Columbus Street lawn. Please check our website or call 703-746-1710 for program updates.  And you can enjoy a story time with Miss Lisa any time of the day-- the  YouTube version of the programs are available at

This program is recommended for ages 2 and up, though younger siblings are welcome.
