Bowie Reads

Bowie Reads is a reading promotion the City’s Education Committee began several years ago in an effort to encourage children to read and to develop a love for reading.

From January to May each year the committee collects new and gently used children’s books to distribute at the City’s annual festival Bowiefest, always held on the first Saturday in June at Allen Pond Park. Parents and grandparents may bring children to select free books to take home to read. Information about reading to children, helping children to learn to read, and other related topics is also available.
