Summertime is Storytime at the Carter Library!

by on July 11, 2014

Do you live in Atlanta or plan on visiting this summer? Looking for fun, affordable, and convenient ways to entertain your little ones? Did you know that the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum holds a seasonal reading program known as Book Nook on select Mondays during the summer months?

Volunteer Program/Tour Coordinator Janet Harris is ready to read! Come visit us for story time at the Book Nook.

Visit us for storytime at the Book Nook

Beginning at 10:00am, a friendly volunteer will read a few themed storybooks to the gathered visitors in the Museum lobby. Stories are geared toward preschool age children (ages 2-5), but younger and older visitors are welcome! Stories conclude at 10:30am, but we invite you to stay a little longer… There is also a world of exploration to be had in the Museum itself and the natural wonder found around the grounds. Take your little ones on a nature expedition to see the diverse flora and fauna found in our city. Enjoy a stroll through the Rose Garden or the new Native Pollinator Garden that has just been completed. Feel free to picnic at any of the tables situated around the grounds or find a shady spot in the field looking toward the ponds.
