Cedar Rapids Area Summer Story Time Guide 2018

My job in education affords me the opportunity to stay at home with our two girls during June and July. I love this time together, but I’m also not used to being at home with them. I’m constantly trying to find activities for us to do and visiting one of our local libraries is one of our favorites. Story time, age appropriate activities, and finding books to read on rainy days keep us occupied all summer. We’re fortunate enough to have 3 fabulous libraries in our area that offer activities all summer.

I’ve compiled all of the baby/children/elementary age activities and story times in one easy post for you to reference this year! All programs run June 4 – July 30. The best part is they are all FREE!
