Join Duke Gardens, Durham's Partnership for Children and other community partners at Duke Gardens for a reading celebration. We'll have free children's books, activities for all ages, storytellers, readings by local authors, a book swap, library resources and more.

Bring a blanket and a picnic and spend the day reading together and exploring the gardens. This is a free drop-in activity for people of all ages. This event takes place outdoors. It will be canceled in the event of rain or other inclement weather.

Additional community partners include Toxic Free, Liberation's Station pop-up bookstore, Duke Identity & Diversity lab, Communities in Schools of Durham and Durham Literacy Center.
