Happy Halloween from Reading Legacies!

This year, we hosted “Spooky Storytime” outside the Reading Legacies Story Corner. Dozens of families and children all dressed in costumes stopped in for sweet treats and live readings of Halloween storybooks.



One of our newest volunteers, a former educator named Elizabeth Ponder, led the way as she brought the stories to life for our storytime guests.

Some of the books included:

Empowering the Generation of the Future, one story at a time....

Join us in reshaping families through the power of reading

As a child development professional, I have firsthand experience seeing the immense impact that reading aloud to children has on their early literacy skills and relationship building within the family and community. One of my favorite children’s books is If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Numeroff.
