06 Oct World of Reading
The 2017 World of Reading event was scheduled for April 22nd at Barnett Family Park.
The World of Reading event is one the League’s signature programs that focuses on school readiness and family literacy. We raise the community’s awareness of the importance of reading and the need to incorporate regular reading as an essential part of children’s everyday routine. We provide literacy information, such as tips for reading aloud, and community literacy resources. Annually, we reach over 10,000 families of all economic statuses. The Junior League hosts its own literacy event, the “World of Reading” each year. We promote literacy in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere while introducing children to multi-cultural concepts. The event is FREE. Best of all, each child that attends will receive a free Scholastic book! We distribute over 1,000 books at World of Reading each year!
