Children’s Program

Schools, libraries, museums, and other organizations help bring Jumpstart’s Read for the Record alive in communities around the world.  Read for the Record is an opportunity to rally your library and the Smyrna community around the importance of high-quality early learning experiences.  The best part about Read for the Record is that everyone is invited to join in!  On Thursday, November 7, at 4 p.m. we will be reading aloud, engaging in some fun activities, and enjoying refreshments.  This year the official campaign book is Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora.  It is a Caldecott Honor Book, and Oge Mora is the winner of the Coretta Scott King / John Steptoe New Talent Illustrator Award.  Our library’s copy came through our subscription to the Junior Library Guild and can be checked out after the program.
