Summer is here-- and so is ROAR! The Ringling's family story time, designed to engage toddlers and preschoolers in activities that connect art and early literacy, takes place on Thursday and Friday mornings at 10:30 am.


During the summer, we offer two choices of books related to that weeks theme – geared towards older and younger children respectively- for your family to choose between. After the stories, both rooms meet up to complete an art project together in the classroom.

This is a free program but a ticket is required. Please get your free ROAR! ticket in the Visitor's Pavilion before heading over to the Library in the Education Building. (Museum Admission is not required).
