Read Aloud Lincoln invites families in the South of Downtown Neighborhood to its free annual event, "Color and Patterns: Stories in Our Community," Sunday, September 9. The event is from 2 to 4 p.m.at the Kennard House, 1627 "H" Street. The coalition promotes early childhood reading opportunities and programs of the Lincoln City Libraries and other local organizations.
The event will include children's activities, dance performances, story time and refreshments. The community building event is an opportunity for neighbors to come together and celebrate reading, their stories and their community.
Read Aloud Lincoln works to spread the word to parents and caregivers about the importance of reading aloud to children from birth to age 8 for at least 15 minutes a day. The effort is made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museums and Library Services and the Lincoln Community Foundation in support of the Prosper Lincoln community agenda.
