The College Hill Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation (CHCURC) — which made big waves over the summer with their drive-in cinema — is malling the season bright for local families with Seasons Readings.
Seasons Readings is a mobile library with free books for kids. The library is located in the College Hill business district, and will be stocked with books geared toward kids 5-12 throughout the holiday season.
Seasons Readings encourages families from both College Hill and other communities to safely explore the various businesses College Hill has to offer while also finding the library locations and taking books.
“The Seasons Readings free mobile library is a great way for us to engage the community and safely encourage people to get out into the business district,” said Seth Walsh, Executive Director of the College Hill CURC.
“We’re excited to be able to provide these free books to kids around the holidays and we hope
that the entire family will have fun checking for clues and going out to find each new location.”
CHCURC will be placing the mobile library in various locations throughout the business district during the month of December, which will be filled with books for kids of all ages, wrapped in holiday paper.
They will be providing clues on where to find the locations for “Seasons Readings” on College Hill CURC’s Facebook (Facebook.com/chcurc) and Instagram (instagram.com/collegehillcurc
