Kids of all ages are invited to join United Way of Inner Wisconsin during the Great Book Giveaway, which will be held Friday, June 15, 10:30am at the Adams County Library.
Volunteers will be reading to kids from 10:30am to 11:00am, and afterward every child present can select a book to keep. Books that will be given away were collected during a community-wide book drive this past spring.
The Great Book Giveaway was created to inspire children to keep reading – and learning – during the summer months. Kids who read during summer are less likely to fall behind when the new school year begins.
All children and youth (from ages birth to 12 years), parents, grandparents, caregivers, and day care providers are invited to attend this free event. Families can come to the event together; and day care providers are welcome to come and bring along all the children in their care.
There will be additional Great Book Giveaway events in south Wood County from June 11 to June 14, 2018. Visit our website at www.uwiw.org for details, or call 715-421-0390.
