DANVILLE — DANVILLE – Pennsylvania One Book author-illustrator Suzanne Bloom will be the featured guest at 11 a.m. April 3 in the Thomas Beaver Free Library.
She will read her book “The Bus for Us” in the library at 205 Ferry St.
There will also be activities including identifying many forms of public transportation and who uses them.
Her visit to libraries in the region is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Commonwealth Libraries.
Her book was chosen by the Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child Reading Initiative for this year.
“Beginning in 2006, the Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child program put into motion a brilliant idea. If you want to inspire children to read, bring them books, and authors and illustrators – up close and personal. Present to preschoolers and gather families at the library for a story time with the actual author,” said Bloom of the initiative, now in its eighth year. “It is such an honor to be that personal connection between stories and students,” she said.
