Help us set a new world record for the most people reading the same book in one day!

We're going to set a new world record by reading Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away. Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away, written by award-winning author Meg Medina and illustrated by Sonia Sanchez is a celebration of lasting friendship, the power of connection, and encountering change. Contact Stephanie Bents (sbents@siouxfalls.org) to request a link to a video recording of the reading or watch a live reading of the story:

  • Vanessa Gomez from Dakota News Now will read the story on Facebook Live at 9 A.M.
  • KELOland Living will do a live reading of the story at 2 P.M.
  • Aldi Bonander from Siouxland Libraries will read the story on Facebook Live at 2 P.M.

You can also read the story on your own at the Downtown Library (200 N Dakota Ave), Oak View Branch (3700 E 3rd St), Prairie West Branch (7630 W 26th St), and Ronning Branch (3100 E 49th St). Pick up a Take and Make activity packet from any Siouxland Libraries location while supplies last. 

This program is offered in conjunction with Jumpstart to promote the importance of early literacy. For more information about this organization, visit https://www.jstart.org/
