Inyo County Community Reads just wrapped up its tenth year of celebrating and promoting literacy and community through reading and art! This year, the theme was “Kindness Counts: Celebrating Kindness, Civility, and Service in our Community.” We started this year’s program with a Community Dinner held at the Tri County Fairgrounds in Bishop. Over 250 friends and neighbors came out to enjoy a free dinner together and to find out how to get involved with our local service organizations. We were proud to host eleven organizations who are spreading Kindness in our community. Click HERE to find out about them and the good work they do.
The two-month long program continued with events hosted by our partner service organizations and free community events like the Community Dinner in Lone Pine featuring seasoned and captivating storyteller Michael Katz, Family Art and Story Times, and a Storytelling Workshop. We finished another successful year with a screening of the movie Wonder. See our full schedule and book selections by clicking the image on the right.
In addition to the many free community events offered, the office of Inyo County Superintendent of Schools (ICSOS) sponsored performances by storyteller Michael Katz in county schools, and purchased books for every classroom in the county. It has been a rich and rewarding tenth anniversary. Thank you for participating!
