March 22, 2019 - On Saturday, April 13 from 12 – 4 p.m., families will flock to Downtown Midland to visit their favorite stores and hear heroic superhero stories during the annual Downtown Story Day event! Participating businesses will create a cozy space for a volunteer to perform a “dramatic” reading of a children’s superhero picture book carefully selected by youth librarians at the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library.
Following each story time, guests will receive raffle slips to enter for a chance to win the superhero books read at Downtown Story Day. The raffle will be held the week of April 15 with all books mailed to the winners.
