On the first Saturday of every month, UA BookStores hosts Storytime Character Hour at our SUMC location (with some exceptions). Storytime is an engaging event for children ages two- to five-years-old. It's full of reading, activities, and crafts— complete with the chance for kids to meet and take pictures with their favorite storybook characters! Our most popular events feature kid-favorite characters such as Daniel Tiger, Curious George, and Llama Llama. Best of all, the event is absolutely FREE and open to the public.
