Ezra Jack Keats Bedtime Stories
Through the Ezra Jack Keats Bedtime Stories and Take-A-Book Series, librarians read aloud to children and lead singing, rhyming, and playing activities related to the themes and images of the book. At the end of each session, every child is given a free copy of one of Mr. Keats' books to keep. The program occurs every month at Central Library and four times a year at Arlington Neighborhood Branch.
Check out Ezra Jack Keats' books at the Brooklyn Public Library.
These programs are made possible with generous support from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation.
