Parents and kiddos, join us Thursdays in June from 3–4 p.m. for Storytime on the Side Porch, where we'll read, create, and play each week! This season’s theme is "Adventure is Everywhere," and from the Welty House Side Porch, we'll explore backyard escapades to worldwide journeys through stories and activities for students pre-K through fifth grade.

Free and open to the public June 6, 13, 20, and 27. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
