Encourage your kids to read by taking part in activities during Idaho Family Reading celebrated by public and school libraries across the state.
The Idaho Commission for Libraries’ Read to Me program is sponsoring the week long event taking place this month from Nov. 11 through Nov. 14. A special dedication to family reading time is meant to encourage families to read together.
This year’s theme “Find it at Your Library” focuses on the large number of books, programs and services that can be found at local libraries, said the commission in a release.
“Not only does Idaho Family Reading Week celebrate families and the importance of reading together,” said Ann Joslin, state librarian, in a statement. “But it is also a chance for Idahoans to explore or rediscover everything their local library has to offer. From story times and makerspaces, to databases and DVDs, today’s library has learning, innovation, and engagement opportunities for all.”
Participating libraries were given six new hard-cover books for the event that can appeal to all ages and given access to additional program ideas and resources to further engage their communities.
