DoverPhila Federal Credit Union is partnering with dozens of area organizations to support the 16th Annual Family Reading Festival at New Towne Mall on Saturday, November 5th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This year’s theme “Every Hero has a Story,” goes beyond the typical heroes with capes and focuses on community heroes such as military, policer officers, firefighters, health care providers, teachers, and many more. Students in preschool through 8th grade will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, contests, demonstrations, and educational programs that incorporate this idea. Local authors and favorite storybook characters and heroes will also make an appearance at the annual event.
There will be a free book for all participants and a drawstring backpack to the first 1,000 children along with hourly door prizes. The event will wrap up with a school competition for best table decorations. Visit the 2016 Family Reading Festival Facebook page for more information.
