I’ll just leave this here for those who are interested:
Grab your favorite blanket and head to reading event
Children’s author Julie Stroebel Barichello will conduct three reading sessions of her debut chapter book, “Sarah & Katy and the Imagination Blankets,” on Saturday, April 11, at Streator Public Library.
Children are invited to bring their favorite blanket to sit on during reading sessions. At the end of each session, books will be available for purchase at a discounted rate of $5, and Barichello will be on hand to sign copies.
The hourlong sessions will be from 1 to 2 p.m., 2 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Different passages of the book will be read during each session, so parents and children are welcome to attend one or multiple readings.
Children who attend can enter their name for a chance to win a reading basket featuring Sarah & Katy merchandise. A name will be drawn at the conclusion of the third reading. All children will receive a small gift.
All proceeds raised from book sales will be donated to the library’s renovation of the children’s section, which will cost an estimated $18,000.
The event is hosted by Streator Public Library and the Friends of the Library.
