Pass-It-Down Family Story Time

Saturday, December 16, 2017, 10:30 am

During our regularly scheduled Family Story Time, we'll feature YOUR stories, songs and rhymes.  Parents and caregivers: what songs, rhymes or stories do you remember from your childhood? Is there a special song that reminds you of where you grew up, your family traditions, your childhood, etc.? Come share it with other families.  If you'd like to share your song, story, or rhyme, please email our Childrens' Librarian chelsea.kirkland@dc.gov with information about what you'd like to share.
