Family Read Aloud program in Kona (Dec. 7)


The Friends of the Libraries, Kona will host a free read-aloud program, “Books are Building Blocks,” 4:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 7 at the Kailua Kona Public Library. This program is offered on the first Tuesday of each month.

Parents must attend the program with their children. Participation is limited to the first 75 people.

The program is designed to encourage family literacy. There will be five separate reading groups: ages 5 to 7, 8 to 10, 11 to 13, 14 to 18, and their parents. Each group will have a person reading aloud to them, followed by a discussion of what was read.

Registration begins 4:30 p.m. in front of the library. Families will then separate into groups with a reader at 5 p.m. Afterward, the families will meet on the lanai for free refreshments, prizes and books.
