cricketOur Fall Chapter-A-Night program begins on October 5th!

Let’s get together and enjoy the classic The Cricket in Times Square this Fall! Beautifully written and illustrated, this is a great story to enjoy away from TVs and texting!  Families interested in participating in the Chapter-a-Night program will be given a copy of the book to read at home.

Every week we’ll pick up on interesting things from the book and put them on the Chapter-A-Night web site — giving you more information, fun activities, or new things to explore.  Then, on November 18th, come for snacks and read the final chapter with us in the Space Station Program Room!

Come into the Youth Room to let us know you want to be part of Chapter-A-Night!
