The Little Read is turning 10 and we need readers!
Join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Little Read. The Little Read is a children’s read-aloud marathon that brings together Montclair neighbors, writers, local heroes and celebrities in a town-wide celebration of literacy and community. Sign-up below to be a “Little Reader.” The event, entirely free to the public, will take place over the course of five days from October 16-20. Each participant reads aloud in 10-minute slots scheduled throughout the five-day event, which is geared to children in pre-school through grade three. Readings take place at different locations throughout Montclair, with a wide variety of books for readers to choose from.
