Launch Event: Growing Great Readers
Hub City Writers Project, together with BirthMatters and The Adolescent Family Life Program at the Middle Tyger Community Center, is pleased to announce the launch of a new program: Growing Great Readers.
Growing Great Readers is a book drive initiative aimed at new mothers aged 24 and younger and their infant children. Modeled after Dolly Parton's hugely successful Imagination Library, the program donates books on a monthly basis to participating families to assure ready access to quality picture and board books aimed at children ages one to three.
On Thursday, June 23, from 4:00- 5:30 p.m., the three organizations will host a reception at Hub City Bookshop featuring storytime with retired children's librarian Bea Bruce at 4:00pm, crafts, and cookies and lemonade. The event is free and open to the public.
