Hi All,

You may be aware that the aquarium offers a monthly storytime to preschool aged children each month. We call this storytime “AquaTots” and it is included with admission for guests.

I wanted to let you know this is also open to volunteers, both to bring your kiddos to enjoy, and to volunteer if you like reading and interacting with little ones.

AquaTots is the first Tuesday of each month, with storytime starting at 10am. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer, you would need to arrive by 10am to get settled in before kids start to arrive. AquaTots will either be in Shark View or the 2nd level of Sea Turtle, depending on the month.

In addition to storytime readers, we would also love to have a mascot to be available for guest photos. We already have a willing soul to be Shipley for September’s storytime…is anyone interested in being a (dry-side!) mermaid for the October storytime?

Just let me know if you’d like to volunteer, and thank you so much!

Have a great week,
Jamie Gaylor
