Dragonfly Books is celebrating Children’s Book Week and Screen-Free Week with Winneshiek County Conservation Tuesday, May 1, at 3:30 p.m.

Children of all ages and families are invited to Phelps Park for stories with Dragonfly Books, outdoor activities with Lilly Jensen from Winneshiek County Conservation, and a special guest -- Pete the Cat. Children will have the opportunity to meet Pete the Cat, go on a scavenger hunt, make a nature mask and other fun outdoor activities.

Rain location is Dragonfly Books.

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect. More information about Children’s Book Week can be found at bookweekonline.com.

Presented by Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, Screen-Free Week is an annual, international celebration when families, schools, and communities swap digital entertainment for the joys of life beyond the screen. Instead of watching TV, surfing the web, or playing with apps and video games, children -- and adults -- read, play, think, create, get active and spend more time with family and friends.
