All Aboard for Story Time! 

Let railroads help introduce and foster the love of reading for your little ones!  California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to introduce a new reading program on the first Monday of each month starting on 11 a.m. on April 7, 2014.  With exciting locomotives and railroad exhibits as visual backdrops, this interactive and fun new program is designed for imaginative young children ages two to five.  Museum staff will read a different railroad-related book each month, starting with All Aboard the Dinotrain by Deb Lund for the premiere “All Aboard for Story Time!” in April.  Afterward, little ones can enjoy the Museum with their parents.  Whether its toy trains or big locomotives, there is something to discover in the Museum that will thrill children of all ages!

“The Slender Poe &  More”

The Sacramento Public Library One Book Read 2013 is “The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe” . In celebration of this year’s book they are hosting several Poe inspired events. Earlier in September they were part of the Sacramento Film & Music Festival’s Friday night Poe Project. That project was a combined effort for the Library and the Capital Film Arts Alliance along with others and was a huge success. Their next event is the public debut of “The Slender Poe”, published by I Street Press with  a reading of “The Raven” by John Allen Cann, Professor and Poet. 

News10's 'Reading Connects'

News10 has launched a major initiative called 'Reading Connects.' Its purpose is to help build a stronger community, one reader at a time.

Fact: 37% of third graders in Sacramento read at grade level. 74% of those students will never catch up.

News10 is teaming up with parents, businesses, schools, libraries and volunteers to improve the literacy rate in our area. We are combining the power of television, the web, and social media with the power of good people who want to make a difference.

Reading is one of the keys to a successful and productive life.

A minor investment of your time can change the path of a child's life.

We are here to help with information, resources and opportunities- for you to help build a better community.
