Bookworms set to turn the page in Hialeah
August 26, 2013 by Mark
The JFK Library in Hialeah is holding its annual Literacy Fair next month. The event is partly funded by The Children’s Trust, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children in the Miami-Dade area.
There will be plenty of activities taking place both indoors and outdoors at the fair, which are likely to appeal to every member of the family no matter what their age. This will include author talks and autograph sessions, food trucks, beverages for sale, live performers, literary characters, arts and crafts activities, and music.
Last year’s fair featured best-selling author Lisa McCourt, who penned the ‘Stinky Face’ series of books. There were also workshops in nutrition and parenthood, a story time, a live animals show, dance performers, and rock climbing. No doubt many of those activities will be featured in this year’s event.
The fair hopes to offer a way for the family to enjoy a fun day together and to help promote reading to children. Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite literary character.
It is very likely that the organizers of the fair will be relying on Hialeah printing companies to help them prepare. This might include banner printing services to highlight various areas or postcard printing to help publicize the event throughout the community.
The JFK Library Literacy Fair will take place on September 14 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Admission is free. To learn more about the fair, call 305-889-5701 or 305-821-2700.
