Page 15 is celebrating National Family Literacy Month in November by giving away over 3,000 books to local children and families.
Page 15, a children’s literacy program in Downtown Orlando, will be hosting “Book Bound” on Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Downtown Orlando Farmers Market at Lake Eola Park.
Book Bound will be giving away free children’s books to all children and families with their choice of over 2,000 new and gently used titles. The event will also feature activities, including a bookmark-art station and a reading nook.
“Author Emilie Buchwald once said that children are made readers on the laps of their parents,” said Julia Young, founder and executive director of the Page 15. “Parents and families have a vitally important role in influencing their child’s connection with reading. National Family Literacy Month has been celebrating this connection every November since 1994, and Book Bound is a great opportunity for families to enjoy and celebrate a love of reading together.”
Books for the event will continue to be collected through Nov. 8., and can be dropped off at participating locations, including Bikes, Beans, Bordeaux, Downtown CREDO and the Downtown Recreation Complex.
