HANFORD — Saturday, Inspire California, along with the Kings County Library and Children's Storybook Garden and Museum, hosted a free community literacy event at the Hanford Library that was attended by over a hundred local grade schoolers.

Saturday's holiday community event, entitled 'Kid's Day', provided kids with the opportunity to participate in a variety of holiday themed activities. Activities included participating in coloring stations, reading circles and making ginger bread Christmas decorations.

In addition to the various activities, each student who attended was able to pick two free children's books to take home with them as part of Inspire California's holiday book drive, which collected hundreds of dollars-worth of free children's books from drop boxes across the Central Valley and one located in the State Capitol.
