WAKE Up and Read Book Drive Kickoff
Join WAKE Up and Read for a fun afternoon celebrating literacy and the launch of its 2019 Wake County book drive! Help us kick off the annual campaign to collect 110,000 books – enough to help build home libraries for every child at thirteen WAKE Up and Read elementary schools, and neighboring child care facilities and community centers. Please bring your new and gently used books for ages birth through age 12 to donate. Events will include storytime with special celebrity readers, face painting, craft activities, and an appearance by Ruben, the WAKE Up and Read Rooster! Find out more about this organization at WakeUpAndRead.org.
This year our special readers are WRAL anchor Brad Johansen and Wake County Commissioner Jessica Holmes !
