Social Summit: Children’s Book Week comes to Breckenridge, Summit County

Krista Driscoll /

The Summit County Library joined in celebrating Children’s Book Week last week by hosting Wayne Francis and his puppet buddy Wingnut, who performed at all three library branches. The duo took their show on the road to the South Branch Library in Breckenridge on Tuesday, May 5, and on Wednesday, May 6, they traveled to the North Branch in Silverthorne and, later that same day, to the Main Branch in Frisco.

Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores and homes — wherever young readers and books connect.
