The Queens Museum Children’s Book Celebration

Jul 11 2015 @12:00pm–4:00pm

Celebrate summer reading for kids of all ages at the Queens Museum! Enjoy readings and art making presented by local award-winning children’s book authors and illustrators in partnership with the Queens Library Summer Reading Program. Free and open to the public. First 200 attendees get a free poster!

What’s cool about the book celebration:

– Enjoy storytime in English, Spanish, Korean, Bengali, and Mandarin
– Practice your reading skills with a Reading Partners volunteer
– Visit the Books of Wonder pop-up shop for a wide selection of books and get them signed by your favorite author/illustrator
– Recycle or trade in your old children’s books at our Children’s Book Exchange
– Sign up for a library card, enroll in the Summer Reading Program, and check out children’s titles at the Queens Library kiosk
