Name: Storytime at the Hattiesburg Zoo
Date: August 19, 2022
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Once Upon a Time at a Zoo not-so far-away, a free Storytime event was being held every Friday (in August and September).
 
The Hattiesburg Zoo will host a free Storytime event geared for children who are not yet in school, and their caregivers. Storytime will take place Friday, August 5, 12, 19 and 26 and Friday, September 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30.  Each Storytime will have two reading sessions, which will be held at 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.  Doors for the first session will open at 10:15 a.m.  Spots for each Storytime session are limited, and available on a first-come, first served basis.  There is no cost associated for this event.  “Providing this free event for our community to enjoy is just one of the ways we give back to the Hattiesburg community,” said Jeremy Cumpton, Director of Conservation, Education, and Wildlife at the Hattiesburg Zoo.
 
A different book will be read each week, providing the opportunity for children to attend multiple Storytime events. In addition to Storytime, children will be able to participate in an animal encounter and education session. Storytime will take place in the Zoo’s Education Room, which is located before the Ticket Booth.
