Little Kid's Story Hours on the Rise
Thursday, November 05, 2015

The New York Times (11-2-15) recently brought attention to the surge in attendance at little kid’s story hours at many of our public libraries. In New York lines are long and tickets (tickets for story hours?) are scarce for these popular sessions.
