Big Ideas for Little Learners: Literacy is Liberty

July 1, 2023 | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Young learners and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a special storybook read-aloud and crafting activities every hour on the hour. When we’re not reading, we’ll be expressing ourselves in our Free to Be Me Costume Corner. Take the fun home with a FREE copy of the featured story! Literacy is Liberty is inspired by Big Ideas for Little Learners, an early literacy initiative co-presented by NLM and the Salvation Army Kroc Center with generous support from the William Penn Foundation. Activities are ideal for learners aged 3-8, but all are welcome!
