The East Central Regional Library system and the Great River Regional Library system recently announced that they will be participating in the “Once Upon a Reader” program. This is a statewide early literacy initiative for ages 0-6.
East Central Regional Library:
This regions involvment comes in free books and events. Free copies of Moo! by David LaRochelle “were distributed through Lakes & Pines Head Start to over 400 children in Aitkin, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Pine counties and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibway.” The events are going to be at several branch libraries, so check out the ECRL calendar or the Once Upon a Reader calendar to find out where and when.
Great River Regional Library:
Like ECRL, GRRL’s involvement comes with free books and events too. From Mooovie nights to scavenger hunts, GRRL has expanded beyond the Moo! Traveling Trunk Show for some truly original activities. For the extensive list, check out GRRL’s calendar or the Once Upon a Reader calendar to find out where and when.
