The hectic holiday season is upon us and families in Katy will be scheduled to the max. Tom Wilson Elementary offered an evening for families to slow down and spend quality time with each other while also supporting the school’s library. On Tuesday, November 13, “I Love to Read Night” took place at the school. All members of the community were invited to bring family and lounge around the school to read newly purchased books from the Fall Book Fair.
“Reading areas were set up all over the school with bean bags, comfy chairs, and pillows for families to read together after visiting the book fair,” states Rhonda Henderson, principal of Tom Wilson Elementary.
Cookies and juice were available for visitors in the cafeteria throughout the event as well as the opportunity to support the school library by shopping at the Fall Book Fair. The Fall Book Fair took place in the library. All profits will be utilized to purchase additional books for the library as well as author events throughout the school year.
Marty Linder, school librarian, says, “This event was a warm and cozy celebration of reading.”
