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.
On occasion, we will have visits from local librarians or library staff. Children and their parents are invited to enjoy whimsical tales, cheerful rhymes, and lively songs in our waiting rooms during these visits.
