Your favorite monthly virtual program is back…
Oh yes, it’s Read And Write Night!
Kalamazoo County youth in grades K–5 are invited to join volunteers from the Western Michigan University chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association to spend time reading out loud then writing together to express their response to the story.
Hear a perspective that is new to you, express your own ideas in writing, and find power in the written word.
All Read and Write Nights will take place via Google Meet.
Each participating family will receive a copy of our monthly book prior to the event
This month’s session is open to 16 families
Registration opens on February 8th

In celebration of Women’s History Month, our March title is The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from Iraq
Written & Illustrated by Jeanette Winter
Alia Muhammad Baker’s library in Basra, Iraq, has been a meeting place for those who love books for the past fourteen years. Now war has come, and Alia fears that the library—along with the thirty thousand books within it—will be destroyed forever.
