Knox County Public Library hosting Saturday children’s programs

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Knox County Public Library is hosting its third year of “Saturday Songs & Stories,” providing parents and caretakers who work during the week a chance to bring their children to one of four libraries to watch performers bring to life nursery rhymes, singalongs and stories of all kinds.

The program is made possible by a grant from the Knox County Library Foundation’s Margaret Dickson Fund. The foundation has provided $10,000 a year for a total of $30,000 since the program began.

The library system provides over 40 storytimes during the week, but due to staffing constraints, is not usually able to extend those programs to the weekend.

Saturday programs take place at 11:00 a.m. at Lawson McGhee Library, Cedar Bluff Branch Library, Fountain City Branch Library and Powell Branch Library. They are free and open to the public.
