Hialeah library to hold reading events for kids

November 24, 2011 by  

The John F Kennedy Library will be supporting the cause of literacy in children right up until the holidays. Libraries usually have tons of available flyer printing and brochures detailing their plans and most likely this one is no different. Even so, John F Kennedy’s local events are definitely worth revisiting.

Dovetailing quite nicely with its work from November, the library will be hosting Reading Fest on Saturday, December 10, 2011at 2:30 p.m. “Children of all ages” are invited to join others in the library’s auditorium.

Right after Reading Fest on December 13, 2011 the library will be hosting Family Storytime in the same auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Once again, kids are invited to settle into the library where they will be treated to a selection of bedtime stories. In the words of the organizers, Children are encouraged to “Wear your pajamas, bring your favorite blanket or stuffed toy and listen to bedtime stories.”

John F Kennedy is home to more than 100,000 books and is said to distribute more than twice that much material every year. According to the site, John F Kennedy’s mission statement is as follows:

“By providing the means by which people of all ages, interests, nationalities, and circumstances may avail themselves of recorded wisdom, experience and ideas of others, the City of Hialeah Library Division promotes the education, recreation and information needs of its community, and contributes to its culture.”

Taking all of this into account, John F Kennedy Library’s commitment to the community is nothing less than remarkable.
