Let’s Read Kick-Off - Little Jack Horner Live in the Corner (Ages: all)

January 25th, 3:00 - 4:00 pm

Main Library

The Family Literacy Committee of Brant held the first Let's Read event in the winter/spring of 2013.  The goal of Let's Read is to encourage families to read together, so each year we choose one book to distribute throughout the community.  This year our book is Little Jack Horner Live from the Corner.  This hilarious barnyard tale plucks favourite characters from nursery rhymes and stirs them all together in one silly song!  We have lots of great events planned.  

Note:  The same event will also be at the County of Brant Library - Paris Branch at 1:00 p.m. today.     

LIttle Jack Horner, LIVE!  Come enjoy live musical performances on Saturday, February 21, 2015 - 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre and also on Saturday, February 28, 2015 - 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the Brant Sports Complex. 

Let's Read Puppet Celebration Event!  This event will be held during the Best Start Parenting Fair at the Brantford Civic Centre on Saturday, April 25, 2015.
