Holiday story time

The Mercury is holding a story time as part of the holiday events happening throughout the month of December in downtown Pottstown from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Media Lab located at 24 N. Hanover St. in Pottstown.

 Special guest readers Mercury Editor Nancy March, Reporter Evan Brandt, TownSquare blogger Mandy March from So Much To Do, So Little Time, and Community Engagement Editor Diane Hoffman will read specially selected holiday-themed books to children and their families during the hour.

Fresh, homemade cookies and hot chocolate will be available for all children in attendance. There will also be a holiday coloring activity for children.

 The Mercury Media Lab is free and open to the public Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located inside The Mercury at 24 N. Hanover St. With three computers, a microfilm machine in which to look up archives of The Mercury that go back to 1933 and WiFi for those with their own laptop, the lab is a great place to sit and relax. Coffee and water are available for $1.

The Media Lab is also available to community groups looking for a free space to use. For more information about the Media Lab, call Diane Hoffman at 610-323-3000 ext. 156 or email
