#OTGYpsi: Bringing Ypsilanti Families Together With Books

Feb 13, 2019

Many young people remember being read to by their parents, whether it's a bedtime story or just a daily activity.  Of course, such an activity fades over time, but the Ypsilanti District Library believes that it shouldn't.  In fact, it should evolve into a more in-depth experience.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg learn all about the "Ypsi Family Read" program from Ypsilanti librarians Jodi Krahnke and Gilliam Ream Gainsley.
