World Read Aloud Day Read-a-Thon

Friday, February 1, 2019

“The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.” -- U.S. Department of Education: Becoming a nation of readers, 1985.

Join us at both locations of the Menlo Park Library for World Read Aloud Day! 

Our Read-a-Thon will feature readers from the Menlo Park community, reading their favorite books to you. We’ll also have bookmarks to color and take home.

Sponsored by LitWorld.org, World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud, sharing stories, and the idea of literacy as a human right by bringing communities together across the world to read aloud and change the world. 

All ages welcome.
