The second annual Storytime for Little Historians program returns this summer. Reston Museum invites our youngest visitors to the Reston Museum every Friday at 11 am to listen to a story about Reston or one of Reston’s founding principles. Books for the program come from the Reston Museum and Reston’s Used Book Shop. Program is offered free of charge and each child will receive a goodie bag. Storytime begins June 24 and will run through August 26. Program is recommended for children under 7.
“We are thrilled to be offering this program for a second year in a row! We have planned new books to share as well as some returning favorites. Seeing our youngest community members engaging with their community’s history is always a delight” says Alexandra Campbell, Executive Director of Reston Museum.
