From the Hornell Public Library,

Join the Hornell Family Resource Center, Hornell City School District, and Hornell Public Library for “A Book on Every Bed” on Saturday, December 9th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

This special winter holiday community literacy event will have parents choosing and wrapping a book for each of their children while the children enjoy winter-themed crafts and a special story time with Andy Gibbs!

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Hornell Public Library.

Create a New Family Tradition! After your children have fallen asleep on Christmas Eve or another winter holiday, place a special gift-wrapped book on their bed. Your children will awaken to find a present they can open right away beginning a special reading tradition they will love. Plus, it will keep them in bed just a bit longer.

The Hornell Family Resource Center, Hornell School Librarians, and the Hornell Public Library teamed up last year to host this community outreach event at the library and had great success; nearly two hundred people attended last year’s event. They all look forward to seeing new and familiar faces at “A Book on Every Bed” and hope to reach as many families as possible. Literacy is a vital part of children’s development and our community is fortunate to have these three groups to support and encourage reading and learning for the families of Hornell. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to the library at 607-324-1210,, or via their Facebook page. The Hornell Public Library is located at 64 Genesee Street, Hornell, NY. The library’s open hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Wednesday 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Friday 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM, and Saturday 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
