Storytime with Santa

Storytime with Santa

Jump into the holiday festivities with us before Santa Claus returns to the North Pole!

Grab your camera (or smartphone) to capture all the magical moments with Santa and Mrs. Claus! Indulge on yummy cookies and hot chocolate, and then settle in for a jolly adventure
when St. Nick shares one of his favorite stories!

After story time, join our Curatorial team in the Lower Lobby where Erika Cosme and Wisteria Perry will present an interesting program about the North Pole and enjoy a fun holiday craft.

This is a casual, family-friendly event. Registration is not required.
