Our fall storytimes may be held outside on the North Lawn/Plaza (bring a blanket or chairs!), or in the large Lower-Level Meeting Room, or in the Kid Zone, depending on both weather and COVID-19 restrictions. If you don't see us outside, check the sign in the Lobby for the day's location. Mask-wearing is required indoors for everyone 2 and older per Boulder County, and strongly encouraged in crowded outdoor spaces.
