Discovery Gateway Children's Museum is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit celebrating literacy and the love of reading. The Reading Nookwill open on Thursday, March 2 with free admission sponsored by SLCo ZAP program. March 2 coincides with Dr. Seuss's birthday which is recognized by the National Education Association as "Read Across America Day" -- an ideal day to launch the new literacy-based exhibit.
The Reading Nook also features information about Salt Lake County's participation in the national Talking is Teaching initiative dedicated to closing the word gap and supporting families of young children to learn together in any language - through talking, singing, reading, writing and playing every day. Discovery Gateway is a proud contributing partner in this initiative and provides an ideal environment for families to engage in these activities.
