The Allen County Public Library will be celebrating the 13th annual “Read for the Record” event on Thursday, October 25. Each year, more than 2 million people in libraries, classrooms, community centers and homes participate in the world’s largest shared reading experience. “Read for the Record” is hosted by Jumpstart which is an organization that provides language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promotes quality early learning for all. The event helps promote early literacy and language skills, and it provides a positive reading experience for children. This year’s book selection is Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López. Join the Allen County Public Library at one of the locations and times listed below to participate in this important literacy event.

    Sorry you missed this event. Those once-a-week emails don't always catch the good stuff before it happens. I'd encourage you to check out our online calendar for the full scope of things happening at our libraries around the county.

    Um, This would’ve been nice to do with my grandchildren, except that I received this email on Tuesday, October 30, five days past the event.
