Reading Bonanza in the Park!

Sign-ups for Reading Bonanza in the Park, a community literacy event in East Palo Alto, are now full. Reading Bonanza is a fun, family literacy event with free food, entertainment, prizes and reading activities for kids. Even though all serving spots are full, we hope you will still stop by the event to show your support for this good cause.

The purpose of this event is to promote literacy and the joy of reading among the youth of East Palo Alto and its surrounding communities.  There is a close relationship between childhood reading levels and future quality of life.  We want the best for our youth and community. Come join the excitement!
