FOR CHILDREN

Story Time at Hood River Library: To better meet the needs of different age groups, the library is offering two different story times: Music and Movement is perfect for infants and toddlers who aren’t quite ready to sit still for long and love to move; Song and Stories is ideal for older children who have an awareness of reading and can sit for longer stories. Both story times are held at 10:30 a.m. on Thursdays in the Children’s library.
