James M. Duncan Jr. Branch Library

Beth Patridge Meeting Room

All Alexandria Reads theme this year is Joy! Join us for an especially joyful Stories and Songs! Ages 0-5

Stories and Songs is first come first served with open floor seating and limited chairs. If you attend the 10:15am story time please be prepared to leave and make room for others to come enjoy the same story time at 11:15am.

We are moving to doing two story times every Tuesday morning to manage the large crowds we have been seeing. Our goal is to make the attendance number smaller so it is easier for everyone to enjoy story time!

If people take advantage and try to attend both story times we will have to move back into our small meeting room space and drastically limit the amount of people who get to come to story time each week.
