Get kids connected to reading at the Cheboygan County Fair

Emily Clare

The month of August is full of great events happening at the Cheboygan Area Public Library.

First, the Friends of the Library will be offering the Gift of Reading to every child who stops by their booth at the Cheboygan County Fair’s Family Fun Day 11 am-2 pm Monday, Aug. 8. The Gift of Reading is just what it sounds like — a free book for every child.

This event will be taking place at the Cheboygan County Fairgrounds and there will be lots of other great organizations providing information and hands-on activities (great for kiddos 0-12, but older siblings are welcome, too) as part of MSU Extension’s Project Connect event

Project Connect brings together many Health and Human Services organizations that offer great services to the community. Be sure to stop by and find out all the great family resources available in Cheboygan. Kids may even have the opportunity to win all-day ride bracelets.

On Aug. 11 at 6 pm, the Cheboygan Area Public Library will also be offering a “Meet the Poet” event with poet Arra Lynn Ross. You will be able to meet the poet, hear about her life and writing experiences, and enjoy a reading of her poetry.
