One Book, One District, One Family Read


Our One Book, One District, One Family Reading this year is Secrets According to Humphrey. We hope families will participate in this fun reading initiative by reading the book together each evening. We have a short comprehension question for each chapter. Your child can write his/her answer on a piece of paper with their name on it and turn it into the library for a chance to win a prize.
