SCHEDULE & EVENT INFO
Scholastic Summer Read-a-Palooza unites kids, parents, educators, public librarians, community partners, and booksellers in a nationwide movement to get books to kids in need during the summer, keeping every child reading. We are proud to be one of the participating bookstores in this nationwide push for literacy.
On July 20, 2019, we will be hosting a book drive kick-off to celebrate the month-long collection of books at WORD BK for local schools and educational programs. There will be face painting, jewelry making, Yoga in Spanish, a storytime, DIY Tie-Dye, and more fun activities throughout the day. Be sure to look out for our spread of upcoming Kids programming and make sure you sign up for our Kids Newsletter that will begin in the fall! For any questions about the schedule or the meet and greet, please email email@example.com.
Can't make it to the store during the book drive?! We've curated a list of some of our favorite Scholastic titles. Purchase one or more of the titles below and we will add it to the donated books for Greenpoint local schools.
