I honestly just stopped by the Barnes and Noble in Florence, KY to get a book but it turns out they have loads of fun things for the kids to do. Enough to occupy them for an hour or two. They have this amazing train table. The kids played with it for a while. They have a stage in the back corner. They didn’t have anything that day but apparently they have free shows and story hours there from time to time.
They also have a huge Children’s section! A fun place to take your children for a day outing. They can play for a while. Then you can let them pick out a book. Be forewarned, this could take a while because of the selection.
They also have a summer reading program. It’s free to sign up. It’s for children in grades 1 through 6. They simply read 8 books. Fill out the form with the titles of the books they read. Then drop it back off. They get to pick a free book off a list of age appropriate books. I highly suggest anything that gets kids to read!
