Saturday Stories

Read as a family


Join us for our version of Family Reading Night, but on a Saturday morning! We will have some fun books, crafts, and board games out so you can spend some quality time together as a family!
Sponsored by Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian, Jesse White, and the Illinois Center for the Book, Family Reading Night is an annual statewide event held to encourage families to spend quality time reading together. Evenings can be busy for families, so we thought we would move our event to Saturday, Nov. 18th at 10AM to provide some flexibility for families!
