A Project Open Book Initiative

Joan Y Leopold Children's Book Week

cbw sollyEach year, The Library helps to create excitement about reading and learning through the Joan Y. Leopold Children’s Book Week Celebration. This event features a visit from a children’s author or illustrator at two or more DCLS locations, Storytimes tied to the theme of the selected book, craft activities related to the theme in libraries and at events, and a free book given to each family who attends the author events.
