Lacey Loves to Read!
Lacey Loves to Read is a community reading initiative designed to generate the discussion and celebration of a notable author. It includes a bookmark creation contest held district-wide with prizes, short story writing events, and more. Each year, a notable children's author visits to share insights with participants on writing and reading.
