A day set aside to honor one little girl who loved books more than words could say… Books transport you to places you’ve never been, help you experience things you otherwise never experience – to be someone new for a few minutes – and to live a life beyond your wildest imaginings. Ten year old Claire Lynsey Rubini knew the power of books, so when she passed away from a heart condition in 2000, NW Ohio embraced her love of reading by hosting Claire’s Day—a day full of programs and services that honor all of her favorite activities. All of the proceeds go to local schools and libraries. Take your family out to the free book fair for a day of storytelling, dancing, making crafts and, of course, reading. This is your chance to meet some of the Midwest’s best authors and illustrators. Support local schools, libraries and encourage your child’s love of reading early on.
