Fortuna Library has been holding Story Time for years. Meet the face of Story Time if you haven't already. Cynthia Cooke has been a dedicated volunteer of the Fortuna Library for years. Cooke volunteers every Tuesday from 3-4:30 p.m. for Grandparents & Books, where she reads to children to help increase their interest in literacy and give them that special attention. On Thursdays, Betsy Brownell of Umpqua Bank does story time from 10:30-11 a.m. and another volunteer provides preschool story time on Fridays from 10:30-11 a.m. For more information about Story Time or the Fortuna Library call 725-3460, visit the library at 753 14th St. or Facebook at www.facebook.com/FortunaLibrary.
