Kane Law Library Hosts Popular Family Reading Night With The Judges

Hear a bedtime story from your favorite judge and tour a courtroom Wednesday, Nov. 15, at the Kane County Law Library’s popular “Family Reading Night with the Judges.”

The event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Kane County Law Library and Self Help Legal Center, located on the second floor of the Kane County Judicial Center, 37W777 Route 38 St. Charles.

Judges Alice Tracy, Divya Sarang and Sandra Parga share their favorite bedtime stories.

The event is for children in second grade or younger, and an adult must accompany children. Young visitors also can experience the excitement of touring a courtroom and sitting in a real judge’s chair. Kids will have a chance to enjoy snacks, laughter and stories, and adults can celebrate the importance of literacy and quality time spent reading with children.
