Storytime @ the Gateway Arch

Join us for a rootin’ tootin’ special storytime at the Gateway Arch. Storytellers from St. Louis Public Library will wow kids with puppets, live music, and stories for this cowboy themed storytime. Come early or stick around after to make and take home your free craft. Brush off your boots and soap up your saddle for storytime at the Gateway Arch on Wednesday July 17th. There are two storytimes, 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM, with crafts available between 10:00 and 11:00 AM.
