Family Reading FestivalCelebrate reading and the important role it can play in the lives of young children and families at this year's event, which is planned on Sunday, September 22 from 2-5pm at the Shops at Worthington Place.

The festival will also include crafts; a scavenger hunt; visits from Llama Llama, Wild Thing and Lilly (bring your cameras, parents!); information tables staffed by children- and family-oriented community organizations; and storytimes for young children.
