Hundreds of Families Enjoy Free Books & Fun at our Literacy Fair

February 03, 2020 - Partners in Education

Hundreds of students have a new home library thanks to the Literacy Fair held this past Saturday at SouthShore Regional Public Library.

School Board Member, Dr. Stacy Hahn, is making literacy her top priority and says getting books into the hands of our youngest readers is most important.

Families showed up to the library and were able to choose five FREE books to take home with them.

There were also free vision and dental screenings, crafts, a petting zoo, face-painting, free breakfast provided by McDonald's and Bess the Book Bus.

Students from Lennard High School performed Aladdin and dressed up as fairy tale characters to read books to our young ones. 

It was a wonderful day filled with reading and fun and family!

AND... dozens of students went home with brand new library cards as well!

Thank you to our partners from Caspers Company, Feeding America, Pepin, MyON, and the YMCA for making this day possible.
