    BOOK TO ACTION: LIVE ONLINE Wiggly Storytime

    Goleta Valley Library
    Jul 7, 10:15am

    These programs use the power of storytelling to convey messages to young children and their families about the importance of taking care of animals and the journeys that pets go on before they are adopted. Curated book lists will bring to life many of the same themes of Strays in terms that are appropriate and accessible for children. Storytime offerings will also include books in Spanish during Bilingual Storytime.
