Read Aloud (Story Time)
Read Aloud takes place in our Sheridan’s Books & Crannies exhibit, and includes early elementary age appropriate stories (but all ages are welcome to attend!). Current story times are Fridays at 10 AM and 1 PM.
Casey loves to play with his blocks, puzzles, and dump truck, but he also loves things that sparkle, shimmer, and glitter. The adults in Casey’s life embrace his interests, but his sister Jessie isn’t so sure. Boys aren’t supposed to wear sparkly, shimmery, glittery things. Then, when older boys at the library tease Casey for wearing “girl” things, Jessie realizes that Casey has the right to be himself and wear whatever he wants.February 10, February 17, February 24: 1 PM Story: "The Night Gardener" by Terry and Eric Fan

Soon, William’s gray little town is full of color and life. And though the mysterious night gardener disappears as suddenly as he appeared, William — and his town — are changed forever.
