Sunshine and smiles for Storytime in the Park

Over 270 little ones and their guardians came out for Story time in the Park at Pioneer Park Wednesday morning.

The weather was perfect for kids to enjoy a story book reading from District of Kent mayor John Van Laerhoven and entertainment from the giggle-inducing Norden the Magician.

Wednesday morning’s Story time in the Park was the first of the summer long program that has story book reading, entertainment and fun activities at a variety of locations every Wednesday morning until the end of August.

Each kid got to take home a copy of the day’s story book, thanks to Friends of the Library.

The next Story time in the Park is July 11 at Pioneer Park at 11 a.m. The story will be Blue Hat, Green Hat, followed by a hat-making activity.

Details on future story time programs can be found on the Fraser Valley Regional Library website.
