South Hills Village, with help from Bethel Park Library and Barnes & Noble Booksellers, are promoting literacy with Simon Kidgets Club Book Blast.
The educational event will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9 in the lower level north court of South Hills Village.
There will be crafts, book readings by some of your favorite local storytellers and giveaways (while supplies last).
Also, meet and take your picture with the costumed character Poky Little Puppy—the star of one of the most beloved books of childhood since 1942.
Share the joy of reading and bring a new or gently-used book to donate to charity.
The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8.
