Storytime with...

While we can't have storytime at the library right now, we want to still provide children access to some wonderful stories.

Today's mini-Storytime has the inimitable James Earl Jones reading To Be a Drum by Evelyn Coleman.

Enjoy, and be sure to check back in tomorrow
for the next mini-Storytime!
