Calling all parents of children ages almost 3 through 6 , Story Hour resumes at 10 a.m. on October 2 and continues twice monthly on Thursdays through May 2015 at the Northumberland Public Library in Heathsville. Each Story Hour consists of songs, poems, stories, a craft and a snack. A brief playtime will follow when possible. To get email reminders about Story Hours and other upcoming children’s programs as the year progresses, interested parents may email Bates to be added to a Story Hour email list. Send those email requests to [email protected], call 580-5051 or go to the library’s website at www.nplva.org for details.
