Rock 'n' Read Around the Clock!
As part of the NEA's Read Across America campaign, Village Lights will host our annual 24-hour reading relay and children’s book drive to promote literacy and benefit River Valley Reads. Rock ‘n’ Read has become a community favorite. So walk in or phone in to Village Lights (no text, email, or messaging, please) to sign up for one or more 30-minute intervals to sit in a rocking chair in our front window and silently read books, your own or borrowed from our shelves. We are collecting donations of gently read or new children's books, which will be distributed by River Valley Reads to charities in the region. Bring them in and drop them in the basket on our front table beginning Saturday, March 2nd. Rockers pledge to donate one or more books. Those wishing to purchase their donations at Village Lights will receive a discount.
