Story Time in the Park is in full swing once again in the Fraser Cascade region. On Aug.  7, local credit union Envision Financial will be sponsoring and hosting the event being held in Hope.

Branch manager Cindy Helmer will be reading Robert Munsch’s “Up, Up, Down,” there will be popcorn for children and the financial institution will be distributing books to all families who attend.

“The goal of Story Time in the Park is to make literacy accessible to everyone and to make reading fun for children,” said Helmer.

Story Time in the Park helps families discover the value of reading. All summer, parents are encouraged to meet at their local park between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to listen to a story with their child.

The schedule for Story Time in the Park is Mondays in Boston Bar at Family Place and Tuesdays in Hope at Memorial Park.

On Wednesdays in July, Story Time in the Park had been in Agassiz at Pioneer Park and on Wednesdays in August, the event will take place at Harrison Hot Springs.

The book list for the remainder of the season is:

· Week of August 15: Dancing Feet by Lindsey Craig and Marc Brown;

· Week of August 20: Hamsters Holding Hands by Kass Reich;

· Week of August 27: Doggy Walk Dance by Michelle Pelletier.
