Program Description

World Read Aloud Day

Come visit the Children's Services Desk during any of the library's open hours on Wednesday, February 1, to receive special goodies, create crafts, and complete activities related to World Read Aloud Day!

According to Scholastic's website, "for 13 years, World Read Aloud Day has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort, created by the non-profit LitWorld and sponsored by Scholastic, is celebrated annually in more than 173 countries and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud in all of our communities."
