Last night, I welcomed nearly one hundred second-graders to the Sun Valley Branch Library for my fifth annual Gift of Reading celebration.
The kids had a great time making bookmarks and meeting Wonder Woman. They also took home free superhero book bags, packed with books to start their own libraries at home. Gift of Reading is just one of the ways I try to inspire in children a lifelong love for reading. And with the holidays around the corner, there’s no better time to check out a book from your local library.
