Ypsi Family Read
The Ypsi Family Read encourages kids and adults to read together with a “One Community, One Book” model. We’ll select a new book each year, provide plenty of copies, and host discussion groups and related programs. Each Family Read ends with a special event that lets kids dive in to the book’s theme.
The spring 2022 Family Read is American as Paneer Pie by Supriya Kelkar. Check it out, talk with the help of discussion prompts, enjoy art, food, and dance at library events, and find fun activities you can do at home on our special American as Paneer Pie webpage. Then on Saturday, April 23, 1:30-3:30pm Supriya Kelkar visits the library!
The main book for the Ypsi Family Read is designed to appeal to upper elementary and middle school students. We also select a list of picture books related to the theme so younger kids can join in the fun!
