Read for the Record

Do you have a child between the ages of 2 and 5 years old? Are you looking for ways to help them fall in love with reading? If so, we are hosting programs at all of our library branches that must be highlighted, starred and circled on your calendar.

We have put together several “Read for the Record Parties” for you and your children to attend. Read for the Record is a nationwide reading event put together by Jumpstart where kids are all encouraged to read the same book.

The book this year is “Quackers” by Liz Wong. This is an adorable story about a kitten raised in a duck world. When he comes across a funny animal called a cat, his world is turned upside down. Wong uses humor and engaging storytelling to show children that it’s okay to accept and love who they are.

Our “Read for the Record Parties” will feature fun activities based around “Quackers.” Below are the program dates and times. We can’t wait to see you there!
