Family Reading Night

Unlock your child’s imagination and creativity with our exciting kids’ reading program! Each month, we read a new book and give kids the opportunity to discuss, play, and create. Kids are invited to come dressed as a character from the book or in their favorite PJs. Each child also receives their own copy of the book to take home to add to their personal library!

Family Reading Night is made possible through the generous support of the following:
