Tues., June 11 at 5:30 pm: Rough Riders Read Featuring Jason Alan Magic

Along with Kent City Schools, we believe that students should have access to books even when school libraries are closed for the summer. The Rough Riders Read program consists of 4 events organized by the School Media Specialists, during which students can pick out a free book. The events are held at various locations around Kent.

Again this summer, KFL will sponsor a performer for the first Rough Riders Read on Tuesday, June 11 at 5:30 at Dan Smith Community Park. Jason and Stacy Alan will perform a fun and interactive magic show! No registration is required to attend this event.
