Outdoor and Zoom Story Times
Outdoor Story Times will take place on the small hill behind the Library. Hula Hoops will be used for social distancing. Bring a blanket or towel to sit on. Children ages 3+ and adults, please wear a mask until you reach your spot. In the event of inclement weather, and as late fall and winter temperatures set in, we will shift to Zoom. Please provide your email address so that you may be notified of any changes. Due to spacing, story times are restricted to Hampton Falls residents only.
