Storytime in the Commons

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended cancelling community gatherings for the foreseeable future. Please check back for further updates on upcoming events.


Storytime in the Commons presents PBS KIDS content, characters and family-friendly themes that focus on learning and character building.

Meet and take photos with your favorite PBS KIDS® characters. Stories are read and shared on the big outdoor screen. Other fun activities for the whole family include crafts, games, and more.

The events are free, but registration is required. Tickets will be available one month before each event.

PBS KIDS characters are based on availability and subject to change. Stories start at 10:00 a.m.
