STORYBOOK WEDNESDAYS. June 24 - August 19, 10 am-11 am. Story Time In The Gardens. We invite children of all ages, accompanied by an adult, to gather in air-conditioned Odom Hall and enjoy a garden-inspired story, snack, and hands-on activity. After story time, join in a hands-on activity – root a plant to take home to your garden. (Indoors and Outdoors, weather permitting). Storybook Wednesday is sponsored by Downtown Books. Mention your visit to The Gardens and enjoy a discount at Downtown Books in Manteo.
