Stories for the Darkest Day: A Solstice Storytime

by Dori Graham | Dec 09, 2017

Winter Solstice

Did you know that the sun will set at 5:15 pm on December 21st making that day the darkest/shortest day of the entire year? On that day the sun will be so far away from the earth that its light can only reach us for a total of nine hours!

That means we've all got an extra excuse to grab a blanket, a shiny flashlight, and a great book or two!

Join us at the Main Library in the Children's Services department at 6:30 pm on December 21st as we settle in and celebrate the winter solstice with an especially cozy evening storytime. Who knows?! We might even build a blanket fort or two!

In the meantime, check out some of these great wintry, solstice-y books from an ACPL library location near you!
