Nikiski Hardware Store, which is something of a community center in the small Kenai Peninsula town, has partnered with the Kenai School District to bring the joy of reading to children — inside the spacious hardware store.
The event is Saturday, Dec. 4 at 9 am at the hardware store, which has a coffee shop area within. Colby Way, a well-loved teacher at North Star Elementary School, will be reading books aloud.
The hardware store and the school district have had a partnership for about a year, and Mr. Way has appeared several times to read aloud to children.
Watch Colby Way read “Two Bad Ants” by Chris Van Allsburg in this prior event at Nikiski Hardware Store at this Facebook link.
