Fade to Books ‘19: Montclair Barbers Offer Free Haircuts for Young Readers This Summer

Evidence shows that when children don’t read over the summer break their aptitude for learning can decline during the fall. Fight the summer slide and look good doing it!

Montclair barbers and stylists are graciously offering to cut children’s hair for free when they read a book out loud during their haircuts as part of the second annual Fade to Books program. Participants will also have the opportunity to enter Montclair Public Library’s weekly drawings for select prizes.

Call any of these participating Montclair barber shops for their Fade to Books ‘19 schedules and read a book during your haircut.
