Family Reading Night is November 21. Do you know what you’re reading? Send an email with your name and library card number to questions@heyworthlibrary.com by November 6 with the ages of your children, some of their favorite books, TV shows, and movies, and if you prefer one longer book to read aloud together, or one book for each family member to read.
