ASHEBORO – Children are invited to join a national celebration of famed author Beverly Cleary’s birthday during “Drop Everything and Read Day,” all day Wednesday, April 12, at the Asheboro Public Library.
Drop in any time for the celebration, which is aimed at getting kids to set aside a time to read. It’s free and children of all ages are welcome.
The event will feature a StoryWalk®, in which participants can follow a trail of pages to read a story and receive rewards when they get to the end.
Cleary is the Newberry Award-winning author of the popular Ramona Quimby series of children’s books.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6804.
