The Minneapolis Foundation, Minneapolis Parks Foundation, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Little Free Library, and Minnesota Public Radio are teaming up for Book It to the Parks to celebrate literacy and recognize Minnesota Public Radio's 50th anniversary.
Book It to the Parks is a community-wide read-a-thon. On Wednesday, June 21, Minneapolis parks will "unwrap" more than 50 new Little Free Libraries. MPR hosts, local authors, and other guest readers will celebrate by reading children's books at story times in parks all over the city, from sunrise to sunset on summer's longest day. More information, times and a list of parks and readers can be found at minneapolisfoundation.org/bookit.
