Dallas Boys Are Lit


Looking for a way to encourage your young boys this summer and provide them with safe, fun and interactive learning experiences? Boys ages 9 to 12 can spend a Saturday morning with Dallas Boys are Lit, a five week literary arts project that engages them in activities to promote reading and writing as tools of personal empowerment.

Registration will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 10:30 am to Noon at the library. 

Each highly interaction session will include conversations and fun activities such as creative writing, drawing, multi-media and vision boarding.
