MCALLEN, TX (October 18, 2017) – Want to find some fun entertainment for the entire family? Your local South Texas College Library is a good place to start. Get to know your STC Mid-Valley Campus Library at its annual “Family Reading Night” on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The free event, which is open to the public, is held in conjunction with Reading Week.
“We want to help children develop a love of reading and to encourage Valley parents to read with their children,” said Lillian Carrillo, Mid-Valley Campus Librarian. “Our college’s libraries are a gateway to the community, and we hope that participants will not only take advantage of these fun activities, but also learn more about some of the great services that the college has to offer.”
The night’s festivities include book distribution by the South Texas Literacy Coalition, entertainer Teensy Weensy the Clown, face painting, and a variety of arts and crafts activities for the entire family. Activities are offered by The Storybook Garden and the Mayor Joe V. Sánchez Public Library. As an added bonus, fun opportunities will be featured by the college’s Library Art Gallery, Architectural & Engineering Design Technology Program, Office Administration Program, Electrician Program, HVACR & CNBT Program, Mid Valley Education Club, Jerry the Jaguar, and a special photo booth.
While on campus, attendees have the opportunity to use the library’s free services or anyone 18 years or older may sign up for a Community Library Card, which allows community members to check out books at any of STC’s libraries for free.
The library is located at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. For more information about the event contact Lillian Carrillo at 956-872-6663.
