Join Meghan in the ACE galleries for monthly storytime! Children will listen to Meghan read, then gather downstairs in Studio A to do an art-making activity related to the story. Kids will leave with new friendships, art skills, and a new-found or renewed curiosity about books and reading! A parent or guardian must stay with their child for the duration of the class. Please enter through the Penn Avenue door.
