Instilling a love of reading in a child is a gift that lasts a lifetime. Children's Book Week is a national celebration of books and reading for youth that "originated in the belief that children's books and literacy are life-changers." We couldn't agree more. Change your child's life by visiting your nearest branch to attend a free class, receive a special bookmark, and check out some books your child is guaranteed to enjoy.
