We’re starting to make plans for Reading Rocks, our annual literacy event at FamilyWorks. The event will be April 16 and features a special librarian visitor, fun literacy games and activities, and of course, lots of books! We give away books to event attendees ranging from infants to high schoolers.
You can help FamilyWorks make this event a success in the following ways:
Donate books. FamilyWorks accepts children’s books year-round, but we would love to have lots of books to give away for Reading Rocks! We’ll gladly accept new or gently used books. We would especially love children’s books in Spanish. You can drop off books Mondays 9:30-12, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 9:30-5, and Fridays 9:30-3.
Volunteer. If you are a reading lover and excited to get to know your community, we need help between 1:30 & 5 on Thursday April 16. Volunteers will help facilitate the activities and chat with people at Reading Rocks. All activities and materials will be provided, but if you have a great idea for an easy, affordable activity that you’re excited to facilitate, let us know & we’ll try to make it work. Please click HERE to volunteer with Reading Rocks.
Attend. If you are looking for something to do during Seattle Public School’s spring break with your child, come join us 2:30-4:30 on Thursday April 16.
Thanks for helping FamilyWorks help spread the joy of reading!
