If your little ones love listening in at story time events, they'll flip for the chance to attend this extra-special gathering with Elmo and his friends from Sesame Street! In celebration of new episodes of the iconic series coming to HBO in January, the furry gang will stop by the New York Public Library to put on a super story time and live performance for families. Youngsters will also have the chance to join the new Everyday Heroes Club, which just requires small acts of kindness to become a member.

To reserve a spot at story time, call 866-717-6106, then head to the Celeste Bartos Forum in NYPL's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on December 8 to visit with the friendly characters from 1–2pm. Make sure to tune in to HBO to see exclusive 30-minute episodes starting January 16 (at 9am), and keep an eye out for changes including new themes, fresh opening and closing songs, an updated set and a brand-new castmember named Nina! To keep the tots occupied until then, check out more family-friendly programming from HBO Kids and tune into some of the best kids' shows on TV.
