Kat Libby and the rest of the Reader to Reader team gave out over 600 new children’s books at the Holyoke Children’s Museum for it’s first ever Family Literacy Day.
A crowd of children excitedly gathered around as they picked out the books that caught their eyes.
“The event was a huge success,” said Kat Libby, Reader to Reader’s Director of Special Programs. “There were lots and lots of smiles!”
We were pleased to join the adult literacy and early childhood providers, local businesses and other community-based organizations in the greater Holyoke area that partnered to conduct the event. The activities included free books, hands-on activities for families, carousel rides, take home resources and literacy prizes.
