The City of Raleigh Museum in downtown Raleigh has a new program this fall for young readers.
Raleigh Reads falls on the first Saturday of the month and features author visits, readings, crafts and snacks. The featured books aim to connect kids today with Raleigh's past. Topics cover the Civil Rights Movement, medicine and music, among others.
It's designed for ages 7 to 13 though all ages are welcome. Participants are encouraged to read the books before the program. You'll need to call the museum to pre-register for these. Call 919-996-3023.
Here's the schedule. They are from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
