IRON MOUNTAIN – Kiwanis of Iron Mountain-Kingsford have announced they have partnered with the Niagara School District to present a Raising A Reader event on Saturday, March 23, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

This important family early literacy event will be held at the Niagara Elementary School and will be facilitated by Kiwanis leaders and early childhood specialists, Barb Reisner and Jonathan Ringel.

Targeting reading with children 0-5 years of age, presenters will focus on creative ways families can read together. Older siblings are welcome to join in the fun and all children will go home with a new children’s book.
