Family Storytimes at the Social Services Agency

It is never too early to enjoy a good story.

Offered in partnership with local public libraries, Read While You Wait aims to promote family literacy, enjoyment of reading, and awareness of local public library services among SSA customers and their children.

Children and their parents are invited to enjoy whimsical tales, cheerful rhymes, and lively songs in our waiting rooms, presented by librarians.

To make things even more special, children who participate will get to choose a book to take home and call their own!

IMPORTANT: The storytimes are intended for the family to enjoy together. Children must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. The adult will be asked to complete a participation form at the time of the activity.
