Children are invited to enjoy stories, poems, jokes, and riddles about outer space in “Reading is Out of This World!” This free event in the Barbara H. Cole Children’s Literature Center in the Boyd Library at Sandhills Community College will be held on Saturday, September 29 from 10 a.m. until noon. Fiction and non-fiction books will be used to show how to build your child’s background knowledge and how to use your child’s interests to build a love of reading.
Children will be able to enjoy making outer space crafts with their parents, as well as games, bookmarks, take-away bags and treats for all. Books will be available for check out.
Children of all ages are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. To reserve a spot, RSVP with child’s name and age to firstname.lastname@example.org.
