“This year the festival also will include short, family friendly workshops featuring read-aloud tips to keep children hooked on books.”
All free, with free parking under the main library and on the street. Food will be available for purchase. I’ve attended this event in the past and it’s a wonderful festival to encourage reading for children aged 3 to 12. It makes reading a book “alive” for children.
