Come out for an afternoon of reading and artistic expression. We have expanded our literary collection to cover (terrible pun) a more diverse array of authors, themes, and ideas. We have added many Caldecott, Newbery, Coretta Scott King, and Pura Belpré award winning books that are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to be opened, shared, and enjoyed.
We'll start things off with a community read aloud, then explore other titles as children and families read together, leaving plenty of time for everyone to paint ceiling tiles centered around your favorite literary characters, titles, and themes. Our creations will be displayed in our Reading Lounge (front foyer) for a ceiling that will only be rivaled by Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.
