Hear A Book; Take A Book

October 15, 2021 @ 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM CDT

Altrusa International of Greater Kansas City, Inc has been invited to be a part of the Merc’s Third Friday Artwalk on Friday, October 15. Altrusa has been asked to bring their award winning Hear A Book; Take A Book project to the gathering from 5:00 pm until 8:30 pm. This free event takes place at the Merc, 501 Minnesota (corner of 5th and Minnesota streets), Kansas City, KS 66061. Join us as we share a love of reading by encouraging each child to select one brand new book to take home and add to his/her library as well as other literacy centered activities. Geared toward pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade children. Adults will read to children and children may choose to read to adults. This Altrusa project was made possible by a grant of $4,000 from Altrusa International Foundation to improve the economic well-being and quality of life in communities that host an Altrusa club. Learn more about Altrusa and the value this service organization places on the importance of literacy to our community.
