As a kick-off for National Library Week, the Augusta Public Library will celebrate Drop Everything and Read Day by building a giant sheet-and-pillow fort. Children of all ages will be welcome to come, curl up, and read. They can also listen to library staff and volunteers share passages from their favorite books.
If you'd like to help out but don't have a lot of time, the library also needs people to lend it clean sheets, pillows, light blankets, and see-through fabrics (such as tulle) for the fort. These items can be dropped off at the library beginning Monday, April 7, and picked up on Monday, April 14.
Please let the library know ahead of time which items you intend to bring so that each item can be returned to its proper owner.
If you would like more information about Drop Everything and Read Day, would like to volunteer, or have fort-building items to lend, please contact Samma Johnson at Johnson@augustalibrary.org or call the library at (715) 286-2070.
