Enjoy Your Kids (& Your) Favorite Characters At Barnes & Noble Story Time
Each week Barnes and Noble stores across the country host a free story time for children and their parents. These free events usually feature a story, a small ‘to do’ like a coloring page and quite often a character visit.
Most stores host these events on Saturdays at 11:00 am, but some stores do host these instead on Wednesdays at 11:00 am. You can check out the time and schedule for a store near you by visiting the Barnes and Noble site and checking out the Store Locator/Event Finder portion of their site.
As always we do suggest you contact your local store to confirm their participation.
Also, if you can’t make the story time in person, Barnes and Noble has a nice ‘Online Storytime‘ feature on their site which features some of the most popular children’s books being read by their authors and
About Barnes & Noble Story Time
(Excerpt from BarnesandNobleInc.com)
Throughout the year, Barnes & Noble hosts more than 25,000 Storytimes — opportunities for children and their parents to hear new and old favorite picture books read by a bookseller, author or illustrator.
A key element of our store programming, Storytimes are a Barnes & Noble tradition that help promote reading and literacy and bring thousands of families together for laughs and smiles. And now with NOOK®, many stores are holding NOOK Storytimes, educating parents and children alike on the joys and ease of digital reading.
Additionally, our Costume Character Visits provide opportunities for children to meet their favorite characters from the world of books. Last year, about 1,000 costumed characters visited our stores and also brought the adventure outside our walls to local schools and hospitals where they continued to delight children.
