Family Tunes & Tales Storytime Adds Music to the Mix!


Bring the whole family to Family Tunes & Tales Storytime at Memphis Public Libraries! A partnership with the Memphis Library Foundation and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, this storytime will bring children’s books to life with a live musical performance during the reading. Then, after the story, kids and their parents will enjoy arts and crafts time related to the book!
