Nightly Storytime

In an effort to inspire and encourage reading at home, as well as connecting with our viewers, VIA has launched Nightly Storytime with VIA. Each night, members of the VIA Education department and other staff members will read to our youngest viewers and their families using books received in a recent grant from the United Way and First Book. It is our hope to connect, educate, and entertain you as we all work through this uncertain time.
