The public is invited to Celebrate Reading with lunch, free books for kids, and petting zoo at the Iowa Falls Hy-Vee from noon to 3 pm on Saturday, April 23.
During the event, guest readers will be on hand to narrate a variety of children’s books inside of Hy-Vee. Each young participant will receive a free book, donated by one of the local libraries listed as sponsors below.
