We are excited to have been invited to join the Haliburton Arts Council Read and Writes
Sub-Committee’s Bookapalooza community event as a partner and, in doing so, we will provide a meaningful and fun component designed for children and families. Our Reading Action Program Committee will take the lead and our participation will include:
A Haliburton and District Lions Club Booth highlighting our club and our Reading Action Program
We will read stories to children and their families
Meet The Author sessions where children will get to meet an author of children's books and be read to by the author
New free books for every child. This will include the books by authors who do our Meet the Author sessions.
Literacy brochures for parents. These were created by early literacy author and renowned expert Jim Trelease and for which we, of course, have permission to print and distribute.
Additional activities will include children’s books for sale by locally owned Masters Books Store and the Haliburton County Library will set up a table where children can sign up for a library card.
Bookapalooza will be a most worthwhile endeavour that is sure to build community, enhance literacy learning and promote a love of reading and writing for all.
