The third week of November is Idaho Family Reading Week and this year’s theme, “Adventure Awaits – Reading Takes You Anywhere,” will be celebrated at public and school libraries across the Gem State, November 10-16, 2019.

The Tensed-DeSmet Library will bring Idaho Family Reading Week to the Tensed -DeSmet community Nov. 13, 2019 from 5 to 7pm. The evening will include events, snacks and an adventure story. There will be books for the children to take home.

“We are excited to participate in Idaho Family Reading Week because it reminds parents, grandparents, and all caregivers of the importance of reading with, or to, the child in their life. Reading is the foundation of a youngster’s entire education,” Benewah County Library Director, Lynn Dever, said. “And it’s never too early to start reading -- and re-reading -- to your little one. Children need repetition for information to be stored in their long-term memories.”

Whether its learning something new, making friends, or embarking on an adventure with a great read, families will enjoy a special evening of activities and much more at their library during Idaho Family Reading Week, Ms. Dever said.
