January Freedom to Read Storytime

FREEDOM TO READ STORYTIME
Wednesday, January 18th at 7:00 pm
Age group: Children 3+ with their families
Location: Auditorium

Join us to hear stories of courageous women fighting for the right to read and to get an education in the most dire of circumstances. Listen to two titles by Jeannette Winter: The Librarian of Basra; a True Story From Iraq; and Nasreen’s Secret School; a True Story From Afghanistan. And, have fun making a craft to take home with you!

Freedom to Read Storytimes are part of the Library’s #WPFreedomToRead initiative. While the books read may not all be challenged, they represent the topics, themes, and people being censored – themes and creators representing diverse and inclusive points of view.
