Bring the kids to storytime at Farmington Starbucks

A downtown Farmington coffee shop is offering a special event for kids and collecting books for Detroit kids in need.

Starbucks, at 33199 Grand River, invites youngsters to story times on March 18 and 25, 1:30 p.m. The shop is also collecting gently used books for the library in Detroit’s Durfee Community Innovation Center.
