Snuggle Up Reading Club 
Families who signed up for the Snuggle Up Reading Club and read aloud together for at least 15 minutes each and every day during February and/or March have earned a new children’s paperback book for each month completed (up to 2 books total).

Families who read to their young children not only encourage a joy of reading and books, but also develop important early learning skills – and have two more books in their family bookshelf! Call us with questions at 503-588-6088.

This program is made possible thanks to an Oregon State Ready to Read grant.
