Monsoon Literacy Celebration

As we get ready to welcome the monsoon, it’s a chance to remember our connections: to the land, the weather, and each other.  Join us at the Fox for a joyful dive into literacy, as we experience the power of reading and writing to open up windows of connection for us all.

Get ready for:

  • The award-winning animated short movie, “Superworm”
  • A sing-and-dance-along with our mascot, Kitt the Fox
  • Storytimes based around the featured authors
  • Fun and hands-on literacy activities
  • Free books and other goodies
  • And more…

Recommended for children aged 4-10, but everyone is welcome!  The event is free, but please register above.


  • 2-3 PM: hands-on activities, storytimes, and literacy experiences in the lobbies and auditorium
  • 3-4(ish) PM:  short movies and fun from the stage in the auditorium
