A program to promote children’s reading will be held later this month in Trenton.
The Trenton High School Key Club, in partnership with the Family Career and Community Leaders of America chapter at the school and the Grundy County Jewett Norris Library, host a stuffed animal sleepover at the library the night of November 18th and the morning of November 19th.
Children in preschool through first grade are invited to take a stuffed animal or doll to the Hoover Theater at the library the night of Friday, November 18th at 7:30.
Participants will read a bedtime story, have a snack, and receive a sleeping bag for the stuffed animal. The Key Club says, while children are tucking in their animals, literacy experts Deb Young and Lynn Griffin will present parenting tips to promote reading at home. Werthen Gass is to provide information about “Nom Nom Read Read,” a Youtube channel which provides books for children and parents.
Children and parents return to Hoover Theater the morning of Saturday, November 19th at 9 o’clock to get their stuffed animals, watch a movie about the stuffed animals’ night at the library, receive a book, and visit the children’s library.
The deadline to register for the activities is this Friday with registration forms available at the library, and on the Trenton R-9 website.
The forms and a $5.00 registration fee should be taken to the students’ school office or to the library.
