Traveling Bright Red Bookshelf

Beginning in June and going through August the Bright Red Bookshelf can be found every Thursday in Elmira's Wisner Park at the Farmers' Market. The story telling tent is the cozy place where children can listen to stories read by volunteers. Before leaving the inviting site the children are encourage to take home a gently used book.

The major change this year is the expanded number of events the Traveling Bright Red Book Shelf has attended.  In addition to Wisner Park Farmers Market, Strong Kids Safe Kids and Diven School Open House, we attended Riverfest, Juneteenth, Farm City Day, Coburn School Open House and the Book Fest at Fassett School.  The number of books distributed was 5,362.  This was more than double the number given out last year.  We were also invited by Williams Financial Group to create a display for their float at the Elmira Holiday Parade.

During this coming year we are looking forward to increasing the number of events where we invite children and adults to choose a free book to take home and read.  New sites will include Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Friday Farmers Market and EOP’s Head Start Carnival.  It is a tribute to our community that so many people and organizations donate books and volunteer to help.
