Young El Paso readers, don’t miss the upcoming Book Block Party coming up in June of 2019.

I can’t tell you how much I used to look forward to the summer while in school because it gave me the opportunity to read all sorts of great books and sometimes get ahead on some recommended school titles for the upcoming school year.

Books are Gems is hosting the first ever Book Block Party where students from the El Paso area are welcome to attend for free. This family-friendly event will also feature live entertainment, food vendors, activities, and plenty of books to kick off and encourage summer reading.

The Book Block Party will also be holding a Book Swap where kids can trade in their old already read books for new ones and refresh their personal libraries.

If you are a vendor or would like to participate in the Books are Gems Book Block Party then contact outreach@booksaregems.org for complete details.
