April 29-May5: Children’s Book Week and Screen-Free Week

Family/Child (Books)

Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect. Village Books donates 10% of all kids' book purchases made during Children's Book Week to the Children's departments of the city and county libraries. And this year, National Screen Free Week coincides with CBW to create the perfect pairing. Check out the variety of free events we have planned to keep kids engaged and having fun with books at villagebooks.com.
