One2Read Community Story Time with Special Guest

Marion and Cedar Rapids Public Libraries are proud to bring these special events to our communities! This year's One2Read book selection is Newbery Award-winning "Last Stop on Market Street" by author Matt De La Pena! This wonderful story is about a young boy, CJ, and his Nana riding the bus around town and getting to know the people in their community and seeing beauty in your town. 

Our friends at the United Way of Eastern Iowa are going to provide crafts and activities at the beginning and end of the story time and our special guest, Marion's Mayor Nicolas Abou-Assaly, will read "Last Stop on Market Street." While you're in the library, take a selfie with CJ and post it online with our special hashtag to be entered to win an autographed copy of "Last Stop on Market Street"!
