Please join us for a special intergenerational reading adventure for 3rd and 4th graders and older adults.
The program is ideal for youth who need extra encouragement to reach for a book and spend time discussing books. Nurture your child’s natural love of reading and chatting through a variety of fun and creative intergenerational activities.

The group will read aloud a few books over the course of 14 sessions and discuss the major themes of the books respecting other’s differences and the value of kindness. Great food and art activities will follow.

2017 Dates:
September 13 (orientation for youth, no seniors attend)
September 27
October 18, 25
November 1, 8, 15, 29
December 6, 13, 20

Only 12 spaces are available for youth. Parents need a pre-phone interview.
