Story times are some of the most popular and well attended programs in our libraries, and we’ve missed doing them as much as you’ve missed bringing your children to them. We are happy to announce that some of our libraries are once again offering in-person story times with some modifications to keep staff and patrons safe during the pandemic.
For now the story times will be outside at our libraries or at community venues near our libraries.
Here are the story-time locations currently scheduled for August:
- Cashmere: Yoga story time, 10:30 a.m. Aug. 11 and Aug. 25 at Riverside Park in Cashmere. Bring a mat or towel.
- Coulee City: Ranger storytime at Dry Falls Visitors Center just outside of Coulee City, 10:30 to 11 a.m. Aug. 7.
- Entiat: Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in the shaded backyard of the library.
- Grand Coulee: Saturdays at 10 a.m., with songs, dance, stories, and more in the shaded backyard of the library.
- Moses Lake: A popup story time event at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 14 in Sinkiuse Square on 3rd Avenue.
- Pateros: Tuesdays at 11 a.m. at Riverview Pavilion in front of the library.
- Republic: Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to noon at the Farmer’s Market in the city park.
Other in-person library programs being offered in August are:
- Coulee City: Dry Falls Interpretive Center Ranger David McWalter will give an all-ages ranger talk about hiking in NCW’s desert landscapes at 5 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Interpretive Center. The event will also be streamed on Zoom for everyone to watch. Register for the event here.
- Curlew: Join our STEM team in person or virtually for a colorful science program that will be live at our Curlew branch at 3 p.m. Aug. 19. The event will be streamed on Zoom so anyone can participate throughout our five-county library district. Join the event here.
- Peshastin: Community yoga in the library backyard, 10 a.m. Aug. 7.
