Complete the challenge by January 15 to receive a voucher for a free child’s ticket to a Hershey Bears game.  More information is available at the children’s desk or online here.


 

 

 

Our brand new program will help prepare your child for one of their biggest milestones: kindergarten! Reading aloud to your child is one of the best ways to prepare them for kindergarten.  With 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, parents are challenged to read to their children to get them ready to read.   

Stop by the Children's Desk to register for the program and learn more! Registration begins January 8.
