Dr. Seuss said it best when he said “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 

Brooklyn Public Library and Jumpstart are allowing young minds to go, grow and soar. On Thursday, October 8, stop by your local library to participate in Read for the Record. As the largest shared reading experience in the world, children will enjoy a group reading of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Celebrity guest Lil Mama and Editor-in-Chief of Red Book magazine, Stacy Morrison will be on hand at Central Library to kick off the festivities.

Adults can get in on the reading fun as well. Brooklyn Public Library will team up with the Weeksville Heritage Center for The Big Read. Come out to the Weeksville Historical Society on Wednesday, October 7, for a reading of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
On your mark, get set, READ!
