Books & Breakfast expands to Westside Elementary
Posted on 10/08/2018

The program was so successful it has expanded to Westside Elementary this year.  Students are treated to breakfast and then can pick out several books to take home.  A member of Turn the Page or a community member will also read a book during story time. 

Books & Breakfast will happen two Saturdays a month throughout the entire school year.  We greatly appreciate Turn the Page for its commitment to this program.
