Why is this needed?
Junior League of Waco hosts families of AVANCE and other community organizations four times each year for Family Story Night. Our Junior League members read and act out a children’s book, serve refreshments, and give a copy of the chosen book to the family. These events are well attended and serve as a way to emphasize interactive literacy for both parents and children. Our surveys showed limited books in the home and little access to libraries. The plan is to increase each year until we are performing once every other month.
