Toddlers and youth love to go places and have fun! Fort Sumter National Monument and Charleston's Main Public Library are partnering up to offer a monthly story hour for children ages 3-9 (preschool to fourth grade). This free, one-hour story time will take place at the Children's Center of the Charleston Main Library, located at 68 Calhoun Street in Charleston. The theme for the January 15th session at 10:30AM is all about the adventures of "Jack, the Cat that Went to War" and will include a hands-on story, crafts, and more.
The NPS Centennial Story Hour is designed to give youth a fun introduction into the history and culture of our National Park sites in the Charleston area, including Fort Sumter National Monument, Fort Moultrie, and Charles Pinckney National Historic Site.
Acting Chief of Interpretation Tony Paladino stated, "As the National Park Service approaches its 100th anniversary in the upcoming year, we are excited to collaborate with the Charleston County Public Library to make this story hour a reality. All are invited to attend this entertaining and family-friendly event."
