For those of you in the NJ area, here's an event worth checking out. Who can resist an event that has free books - not me!
11:00am (C) Bookfest Hackensack 2009
When: Sat, November 21, 11am – 2pm
Description: Free book giveaway for kids of all ages (and even adults) at the Johnson Public Library on Saturday, November 21, from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Come join the fun, courtesy of “Read Now!,” an organization founded for the purpose of promoting literacy for young children, predominantly preschoolers, in the Paterson, Passaic, Hackensack, Englewood, and Teaneck areas. With the goal of helping these children be better prepared when they start school, Read Now! provides books for children to keep. They also provide trained volunteers to read to children and encourage parental involvement in promoting reading and literacy in their homes and communities. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome!
