Here are my picks for South Sound weekday fun for the week of May 30th Know something great I missed? Want my help finding something else? Let me know!
For my South King County readers, Westfield/Southcenter has a variety of special deals/activities every day. For some reason, they put them on this kind of hard to see calendar! Click on it-it gets bigger!
Story times at Pierce County Libraries. Every library has multiple story time events this week. Select the date you want on the calendar and find a story session at a library near you! There are also story times at Tacoma Public Libraries. I don’t list these separately due to space issues. If you’re one of my Thurston County readers, here is the link toTimberland regional library. Use the calendar to the left to look for kids’ story times. Here is the link for my Kitsap readers (this is a large-ish pdf file-scroll down for the storytimes).
