Continuing the popularity of the Storytime on Tuesday program, the Dubois County Museum, at 2704 N. Newton Street in Jasper, announces Storytime on Saturday. Once a month, on the second Saturday of the month, the museum volunteers welcome children ages pre-school to about 2ndgrade to Storytime. In this hour or so, the children will hear stories centered on a particular theme and be invited to create and enjoy crafts and activities. It all takes place in or around the Children’s Area of the museum. Volunteers will begin at 10:30am with the stories and then children and their families are invited to participate in the crafts and activities. The families are then free to explore and enjoy the museum at their own pace. The museum is open from 10 to 4pm on Saturdays. The Dubois County Museum is one of the largest county museums in Indiana, featuring 50,000 square feet of exhibits with over 9,000 pieces of the 41,000 piece collection on display. The dates of the Storytime on Saturday are October 13, November 10, December 8, January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, and May 11. In June the museum will resume their weekly Storytime on Tuesday program for the summer.
Admission is charged. The admission price is $5 per adult, $3 per high school student, $2 per middle and elementary school, and those under the age of 4 are free.
