Making Learning Fun! Team Smiley visits the Carnegie Library Summer Reading Extravaganza

What an exciting day we had! Team Smiley was ecstatic to be involved in the 11th annual Summer Reading Extravaganza hosted by the Carnegie Library. This was the team’s first big event of the summer. We could not have imagined a better way to spend the beautiful Sunday afternoon than with hundreds of children excited about reading!

The Extravaganza is a very cool event that encourages summer reading and helps the library deliver learning opportunities to citizens of Pittsburgh. Everyone had an awesome time and our cookie decorating station was a huge hit among the crowd. Our guests creatively decorated over 1000 cookies ranging from the traditional smiley face, to cookies decked out as characters from their favorite books. Our team also distributed over 3,000 additional cookies!

It was a great day for everyone, especially Smiley who was overjoyed to pose in pictures with his fellow lovers of reading! We had an amazing day and were so happy that we were able to celebrate such a fun event with all of you!
