Do you want to get to know the people in your community better? We have gathered human “books” to be checked out by “readers” for 30 minute conversations. Readers will have the opportunity to talk to people in our community who are willing to share some of their life experiences that have been influenced by their occupation, their ethnicity, their religion/ideology, their social status, or by a disability. Register to checkout a "book" by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 972-304-3658.

Books read to them at storytimes and daycare can be included. Books can be repeated too! Reading to your child improves vocabulary and language skills, improves concentration, and is a great way to strengthen your relationship.
