Let's Read 2018

The Family Literacy Committee of Brant held the first Let's Read event in the winter/spring of 2013. The goal of this initiative is to encourage family reading and each year one book is selected and distributed throughout the community. 
 
 
Who is playing that beautiful music in the subway? And why is nobody listening? In The Man with the Violin, bestselling author Kathy Stinson has woven a heart-warming story that reminds us all to stop and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
 
Your family can pick up its free copy of The Man with the Violin at any one of our Let's Read events!
 
As always, we'll be celebrating Let's Read with a ton of fun!
