Are you looking for something to do with your little ones in this cold weather? Live North of the Cincinnati area? If you said yes, take a glance at your local library for story time. I know story time is one of my kids favorite activities! They love to go and listen to someone beside Mommy or Daddy read to them. It’s become something they look forward to. I put something about this on my Facebook page recently and Shannan mentioned it would make a good post for Family Friendly Cincinnati! I agree! So, for those of you who are looking for story times, I put together a list.

Great post Kandi. We’ve visited Mason’s story times but I really want to see the new library in West Chester soon.
Hi Tracey – We are working on our top picks for that right now. Each month we post the library offerings for Hamilton County, with links to Libraries around the Tri-State. We should have it up soon. You can find a complete list on the Library site, here —> http://www.cincinnatilibrary.org/programs/calendar.html
