Read for the Record: West Palm Beach

The City of West Palm Beach will participate in the national Read for the Record
campaign on Thursday, October 25, 2018. The City encourages residents to take the time that day to read a book aloud to their own children or family members to encourage a love of literacy, books and family together-time. City leaders and employees will also take time to personally read to children at City recreation centers, local elementary schools, the City's downtown library and at many of the faith-based child-care centers.
This year, we will be reading the book, Maybe Something Beautiful
by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López. This is a wonderful story about how a splash of color can change a community of gray. Based on the true story of the Urban Art Trail in San Diego, California, Maybe Something Beautiful
reveals how art can inspire transformation and how even the smallest artists can accomplish something big. Pick up a paint brush, and join the celebration!
The Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach has many copies of this year's book available at the library and copies of the ebook accessible in cloudLibrary
. We encourage parents and caregivers to come in and check the book out! On the day of the event, the library will have a craft project to accompany the book, as well as a place for families to sit down and read the book together.
