Completion of literacy challenges, like attending a storytime, are awarded digital badges. First day features a 10 am Family Literacy Social at Iris Plaza Library, a 10 am Move with Me Toddler Time at Moreno Valley Mall Library, and 1 pm Rock ‘N’ Roll Circus with musician Chris Yates at the Main Library. Final day, Saturday, July 29, ends with an Open Mic finale and prize drawings.
