PREVIEW // Literacy Day @ the MF

Join us next Saturday, May 23rd for a day of exploring the wonderful world of literature! This Literacy Day will be filled with a variety of activities from story time and bookmark crafts to a book sale, and will include visits from the Land of Nod Bookmobile and Little Free Libraries. Here's what the schedule for the day looks like:

Mini-Factory: MEMORY! / 10AM-11AM

The Mini-Factory program is for children ages 3-5 and their parents or caregivers. Young children explore a variety of themes and installations at the Mattress Factory, participate in story time and work on a collaborative hands-on project.

Land of Nod Tour Bus Visit / 11AM-1PM

The Land of Nod Bookmobile is bussing into Pittsburgh! Enjoy a story time, bookmark crafts and much more. For every book purchased from The Land of Nod, Random House Children's Books will donate one to Milk + Bookies, a charitable organization that provides books to those who can't afford their own.

Little Free Libraries / 12PM-5PM

Join Brasher High School students and Repair the World: Pittsburgh in a kickoff event for their Little Free Libraries initiative. Browse the Little Free Libraries the students have created and "adopt" one for installation in your own neighborhood.
