Parents, caregivers, aunts, uncles, and grandparents: BookSpring wants you and your family to celebrate readers of all ages and get ready for your summer reading with a fun family event! Join us on Saturday, May 13 from 2-4 pm outdoors at The Arboretum at Great Hills for the BookSpring into Summer: A Celebration of Readers.
Come enjoy a live performance from Austin’s favorite children’s performers The Biscuit Brothers! The Biscuit Brothers is a mission driven PBS children’s educational television series. The two-time Emmy award winning program uses a mix of live-action puppetry that teaches art related concepts to children and families.
Activities for families will include face painting, a mask making station, design a tote bag, and other crafty book related activities. Everyone can join in on the fun with games such as cornhole and an oversized Jenga! Austin area eateries will have some delectable bite size treats available.
Admission is free but tickets for food and activities will be available for purchase at the event. Families can also pay it forward by donating three children’s books for one free activity or food ticket! (Limit 3 per person.) These books will benefit the ReBook program which serve various healthcare, education, and community partners.
Help us celebrate the amazing work our Read-A-Thon participants did this year and pickup one of our suggested summer reading lists!
