Early literacy education is front and center here, where dedicated staff hold more than two dozen Storytimes each week, including two weekly Sensory-Enhanced Storytimes for kids of all ages on the autism spectrum. Storytimes are complemented by elementary school book clubs and writing workshops, our annual Summer Reading Program, and weekly drop-in Kids’ Zone programs that keep kids engaged in learning and literacy all year long. James H. LaRue also hosts popular author programs for adults several times each year, with presentations and book signings in the spacious upstairs study area.
