Community Storytime Reads

Listen along as a prominent Grand Valley Community Member or Business Owner personally reads a story aloud to you. Developed for children ages 0-5 in mind, but can be enjoyed by adults and older siblings as well! Learn about the people who work in our community everyday, and familiarize yourself with them by putting a face to their name. Follow along as we lead you throughout the community of Grand Valley. Everyone loves a good story and we hope we can strengthen and unite our community with this timeless tradition of bringing people together even while we 'socially distance' during a world-wide pandemic.
