FREE Book Giveaway and Storywalk, Saturday, August 1st!

Posted on July 30, 2020 by admin


I will be joining my colleagues from Waterbury Reads Gently Used Children’s Book Drive on Saturday, when we will be handing out FREE books to kids from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. in East Mountain Park.

The book giveaway also coincides with the next Storywalk, which features our August local authors of the month, Arlene Garcia and Nia Coleman, and the book: “My Pink Bonnet”

StoryWalks® are a free and fun way to share books while enjoying the outdoors. Each StoryWalk® features pages from a children’s picture book that are laminated onto signs that Waterbury Reads volunteers place along an outdoor path. Most of the books are for children ages 2 to 7 and the stories will change weekly at each location.

Waterbury Reads StoryWalks® will be on display from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and will continue through the summer.

*please note that days and times are subject to change and weather conditions may impact the plan. Updates will be posted on the Waterbury Reads Instagram and Facebook page.
