Presently, Storytime is an event for local children at the [[Williamstown Public Library]] organized and performed by Williams students. To join or attend, contact [[Ariel Heyman]], '08, at <email></email>.
Storytime began as the brainchild of Chris Holmes '03. There were some readings during the spring of 2002, but the tradition really got going during his senior year in fall of 2002, when he switched rooms with a friend in [[Currier Hall|Currier]] so that he could have the second floor room whose window opened out to the balcony. From that ledge, he read stories regularly to members of a group of [[Odd Quadder]]s and friends who would eventually become the [[Deviants]]. Chris or his close friend Jesse Dill '04 would usually choose the stories and listeners would spread sleeping bags and blankets and gather on the quad grass to listen, usually at night.
is An event by the same name and in similar character was carried on by a reading group of friends, most from the [[|'05]], based in [[Mark Hopkins House]] in the [[Greylock Quad]]. Meetings were in the building's first floor [[common room]] and usually featured things baked by Jocelyn Gardner '05 and her helpers. In fall 2004 and acting-out of after, Storytime changed into a storybook or two in front of an audience of adorable reading and adoring performance for children at the [[Williamstown Public Library]], complete with fantastic costumesled then by Lucy Thiboutot '05, usually assembled who recruited her friends to read and play characters from the closets children's tales. Quite many of the participants, players and incredible props, such as costumes were from the [[Elizabethans]]. Weekend mornings or afternoons were typical times. Rehearsal minimal. Props might include a giant stuffed dogs dog serving as a noble steedssteed. It occurs at least once a month on a Saturday morning or afternoon, and is wonderful.
