Family Reading Night Coming Up

Family Reading Night is an annual statewide event held the third Thursday in November to encourage families to spend quality time reading together.  This year’s Family Reading Night is November 18.  Do you know what you’re reading?

Send an email to questions@heyworthlibrary.com with your name and library card number by November 4 with the ages of your children, some of their favorite books, TV shows, and movies. We’ll put together a kit with books, coloring sheets, crafts, and more for your family to enjoy at home on Family Reading Night.
