The Reading Connection held a community reading festival at the Quincy Library on Saturday, May 12. More than 40 families attended and enjoyed the read-a-long session and the interactive crafts.
The Reading Connection is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children and families by helping them create and sustain literacy-rich environments and motivation for reading. This mission is accomplished by volunteers who read aloud to children at shelters and community centers, donations that provide children with free, new books to keep,
workshops that help parents encourage reading and literacy development and training for family support workers who promote the importance of reading.
