BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Assistance League of Bend will be providing over 800 free Scholastic books to children at the Family Movie Night event at the Tower Theatre on Friday, Sept. 23 at 6 p.m.
This free event is in partnership with Deschutes Public Library and the Boys and Girls Club of Bend. Thanks to Assistance League of Bend’s Operation School Bell® literacy initiative, families will be able to select age-appropriate books based on their child’s grade level: K-2, 3-5 or 6-8. Studies show that encouraging children to read helps to improve their skills and promotes a lifelong habit.
