Learning Village Librarian Sarah FitzHenry has partnered with New Dominion Bookshop, owned and operated by Julia McCrae Kudravetz '98, to provide free summer programming.
"I will be offering the same kind of literacy-rich, high engagement programming that I bring to the St. Anne's-Belfield School library to all Charlottesville families for free," noted FitzHenry.
"We have two June events planned so far, and I'm hoping to add a few more to the calendar before summer is out. My goal is to make love of literacy and fun with books more accessible, dynamic, and inclusive for all Charlottesville families."
FitzHenry's first event, Narwhal and Jelly Storytime, will be offered to young kids and families and include free Grit coffee and a 10% discount on the featured books. The event will kick off on June 29 at 11:00 a.m.
On June 27 at 7:00 p.m., FitzHenry will offer a Page to Screen Book Club event featuring To All the Boys I've Loved Before with free pizza for teens and tweens.
New Dominion Bookshop is located on the historic Downtown Mall at 404 East Main St. More information on these and all events can be found at www.ndbookshop.com/events.
