The Little Read, Montclair’s children’s read-aloud marathon that brings together neighbors, writers, local heroes and celebrities in a town-wide celebration of literacy and community, is here! The event, entirely free to the public, takes place over the course of four days from October 16-19.

The Library’s annual Little Read has become one of the fall’s must-attend events for families with young children. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves.

Each participant reads aloud in 10-minute slots scheduled throughout the five-day event, which is geared to children in pre-school through grade three. Readings take place at different locations throughout Montclair, with a wide variety of books for readers to choose from.
