Books will come to life at Kern County Libraries for the month of June.

The Kern Dance Alliance, Kern County Library and Kern Literacy Council have teamed up for Books in Motion: DANCE + LITERACY.

The program invites children to visit Kern County Library branches to watch a dance performance based upon a children’s book. Following the performance, children will learn choreography, create a craft and take home a free book.
