During the event children reenacted storybook themes, watched puppet shows, and were read to by literacy enthusiasts. All of the activities revolved around storylines and emphasized the importance of reading, education and family literacy.
Participants also had the opportunity to choose new books to take home courtesy of Borders Books and Music, and Just 1 Book, a local organization improving the lives of children one book at a time. More than 400 books were given away at the event.
