We would love to have you host a booth or volunteer to be a story reader for this special evening.

You can also email to sign up or retrieve further information!

Cultural presentation booths will be hall displays and will be designed by you with the help from our staff – you can have some or all of the following: small food samples, displays and decorations, artifacts, flags, pictures or art, games, gadgets, photos, short demonstrations, information flyers/pamphlets or recipes to present along with the story time.
