Wake County’s talented youth librarians will present storytimes modeling core practices from Every Child Read to Read early literacy program. Families can also enjoy songs on the wagon shuttle and hands-on learning experiences at the activity tents. A food vendor will also be on site for attendees to grab a quick lunch.

Families are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets and spend the fall day listening to tales in a beautiful park setting. Storytelling will occur underneath large tents and the event will occur, rain or shine.

Presented in partnership with Wake County Parks, Recreation, and Open Space.
