Story Time & Family Walk

Children's Story Time

Looking for a fun, free and easy-to-coordinate activity? Join us in our cozy children’s book nook with comfy kid-sized cushions, a bevy of stuffed animals and lively readers. Afterward, families can enjoy a special docent-led children's tour of the Garden. Be sure to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

This event is suitable for children ages 4–8. Held on the first and third Sunday of every month at 10:30am, Story Time lasts approximately 30 minutes. The tour leaves the Library at 11am. The Library also has an excellent collection of books for children on plants, natural history, general science, and nature-related myths and stories.

Entrance to the Library and story time is always free for all. Entrance to the Garden is free for all Garden Members and SF residents with proof of residency. See our visiting information for details on admission for non-residents and non-members.
