Snuggle Up Reading Club

Families who have signed up to read aloud together in February for 15 minutes each day, have earned a free book to keep. Don't forget to stop by the Children's Desk to pick up your free prize book for your family. Those who also complete the March calendar will be able to pick up an additional prize book in April.

Snuggle Up Reading Club is made possible by the Oregon State Ready to Read grant.
