During the COVID-19 pandemic, when our amazing presenters can’t visit kids in person, we’ve launched a virtual storytelling series. Kids and families join CLiF’s talented authors, poets, and storytellers to hear their inspiring work each week. Tune in on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. EST for storytime! See the upcoming line-up and sign up here.
