As with last year’s Family Reading Night, the event will be a drive-by parade, and we are encouraging face coverings as well as following social distancing guidelines for the well-being of students, faculty, staff, and community users.  We will be giving out goody bags while supplies last!

This free event, which is open to the public, is held in conjunction with Reading Week. We know that the event cannot be structured the same as past years, but we hope that by having a drive-by parade, we can continue this tradition.

The library is located in Building E1.200 at 400 N. Border in Weslaco. For more information about the event, please contact Lillian Carrillo at 956-447-6663.
