Story books will come to life on Saturday, September 24 when the Sioux Empire United Way hosts its 16th Annual Reading Festival at the Ramkota Inn Exhibit Hall.

Get in the Gear with Reading will feature children's activities and crafts, live storybook readings, literacy information, and live children's entertainment.

The event is free for all attendees, and will be held from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Ramkota Exhibit Hall.

All children in attendance will receive a free book, and parents will receive literacy information and resources.

The event began in 2001 as a way to promote the importance of literacy to children. Since then, more than 9,500 books have been provided to area children.

The Reading Festival is free for all attendees. To learn more about the event, visit their website, or call United Way at 336-2095.
