Idaho Family Reading and Togetherness
Celebrate family and literacy by reading together during the month of November! We want children to know that reading is rewarding, so each family member who reads the book will earn a prize. This year’s title is Sideways Stories from Wayside School, by Louis Sachar. Read the story aloud or as a family book club. Either way, you earn a prize! Pick up a free copy of the book at the library, while supplies last, starting November 1st. Don’t forget to attend our fun Idaho Family Reading Celebration. Details below.
