Children's Mental Health Storytime
Children's Mental Health Storytime

Families with young children are invited to virtual Children’s Mental Health Storytimes co-hosted by the Vital Village Network Mental Health Committee and Boston Public Library.

Together, we bring families together for book readings and activities focused on Social-Emotional Learning inspired by our Children's Mental Health Storytime Toolkit

Every Thursday from 3:30-4:00pm

See Vital Village Network Calendar for Updated Schedule and Zoom Information.

Sessions are designed for families with children 3-8 years old, however, younger and older siblings are welcome to join the fun! **We require a caregiver register and join the child during the session.**

At the end of our session, there will be an opportunity for Q&A and resource sharing with parents/caregivers. If you are interested in learning more about the Children's Mental Health Storytime Toolkit, please email
