Boca Raton Public Library Celebrates Read for the Record

Boca Raton Public Library – Downtown Celebrates Read For The Record Featuring A Reading Of The Children’s Book, “Maybe Something Beautiful”  October 18, 2018

Boca Raton, FL – The Boca Raton Public Library invites you to celebrate Jumpstart’s 13th annual Read for the RecordThis eventbrings together millions of people across the United States each year to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for every child, so that all children will enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Join us during Drop-In Story Time at the Downtown Library on October 18 from 10:00-10:30am as a member of the Boca Raton City Council reads this year’s book, Maybe Something Beautiful, by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López. What good can a splash of color do in a community of gray? As Mira and her neighbors discover, more than you might ever imagine! Based on the true story of the Urban Art Trail in San Diego, California, Maybe Something Beautiful reveals how art can inspire transformation.

“Read for the Record brings people together all over the U.S. in classrooms, homes and libraries to highlight the important of early literacy,” says Amanda Liebl, Youth Programs Director. “This year’s book, Maybe Something Beautiful, reminds little readers that their creativity, no matter how small, can inspire and benefit their very own community.”

The first 100 children to enter the doors will receive a free paperback copy of Maybe Something Beautiful courtesy of the Friends of the Library (one book per family), and everyone will enjoy a cupcake. No enrollment required.

Read for the Record is just one component of the Boca Raton Public Library’s continued support for early literacy education. Throughout the year, the BRPL hosts numerous early literacy classes, enrolls children in the 1,000  Books Before Kindergarten program and provides Literacy Backpacks to library cardholders.
