Family Reading Night Celebration!

cover of book entitled Little Elliot Big Fun by Mike CuratoThe Urbana Free Library is so excited to be participating in Family Reading Night, a statewide initiative that encourages families to spend quality time reading together. Recent studies show that taking the time to read to young children at home not only helps develop early literacy skills, but it helps develop advanced cognitive and executive functioning as well. Reading together benefits children academically, intellectually, and emotionally!  Families of all ages are welcome to come enjoy silly stories, catchy songs, and fun crafts inspired by our favorite cuddly elephant, Little Elliot. We hope to see you there!  -Molly
