Dan Wardell
Come join the fun on Friday, June 17, for our special guest Dan Wardell of IPTV KIDS Clubhouse. Program will be on held at 10:00 am for all children in Preschool – 8th grade. “Now in its tenth year, IPTV’s Reading Road Trip features an original, interactive story that is connected to this year’s summer library reading theme: ON YOUR MARK, GET SET…READ! Dan will take kids on an adventure as they compete against cosmic aliens during the Intergalactic Olympic Championships! Plus every child attendee will receive a commemorative “space orb” for their efforts. Dan will encourage kids to do something one might not expect from a television personality: turn off the TV, go outside and play, eat healthy snacks, use their imagination and read a good book.”

On Your Mark, Get Set…Read!
