Reading is a huge part of our everyday life.  At home, we make reading fun for our son and that is what the Friends of the Amarillo Public Library is all about.  Saturday, they are hosting their 3rd annual Open Book Festival.

This open book festival is to celebrate Books and Reading, and to raise funds for Library Education Services.  There will be a day full of fun activities for the whole family.
