We are joining in cooperation with the children’s departments from ten area libraries to offer book discussions, programs, and parties, all based on Dan Yaccarino’s Go, Go America: 50 States of Fun. See the entire schedule online at www.thebigread.org/kids-read-too, or pick up a flyer in the Children’s Department. All of our Monday Kids Club activities in March will be inspired by pages from this wacky book, and we are also offering some special events of our own.
Download our complete program schedule here, and register for all of our events online, in person, or by calling us at 708-352-0100708-352-0100.
