Family Story Hour Holiday Event – December 16, 2023

Our final Family Story Hour event of 2023 was held on  Saturday, December 16th  outside Barracks 15 at the North Promenade at Liberty Station.

We had several families join us for an outdoor live reading of “Multitask with Jarvis and Dad”, by former NFL player, Jashon Sykes. His book and many other children’s titles were available for sale by our friends at the mobile bookstore, Joyride Bookshop. Dozens of children and their families enjoyed hands-on activities, browsing children’s books, and taking photos with Santa in celebration of the holiday season.

Thank you to all of our volunteers and guests for joining us for Family Story Hour!
