Education Foundation Launches 'Stand Strong' Challenge for Manassas Reads!
We are so happy to be teaming up with MCPS Education Foundation this year for Manassas Reads! In an effort to highlight how local businesses support our schools, participating students and their families will be challenged to visit as many businesses as they can before reaching the “Finish Line” at the Manassas Reads event in the Harris Pavilion on Saturday, April 27, 2019. Participants will receive a raffle ticket for every business they visit! Are you feeling up to the challenge? Students will receive their Challenge passports at their schools in early April.
Are you a business interested in participating in the challenge? Please visit the Stand Strong Challenge webpage to learn more or register to participate by March 8, 2019.
About Manassas Reads
The Prince William County Public Library System, City of Manassas and Manassas City Public Schools joined together to host the first community-wide book festival in October 2014 at the Harris Pavilion. The annual event now takes place in the spring every year and continues to offer many events and giveaways, including LOTS of free books for all ages, prizes, special community guest readers, the chance to meet published and local authors, student presentations, live music and so much more!
Donate Books to Manassas Reads!
Manassas community: Our goal is to collect as many gently used or new books for ages pre-K through young adult. In an effort to continue to promote reading in the community, the hope is that all who attend can leave with 10 free books. Donations can be dropped off at Central Office (8700 Centreville Road, Ste. 400). Book donations are also being accepted at all MCPS elementary schools, Mayfield and Baldwin Intermediate schools and Metz Middle School. Addresses for the participating schools may be found on the School Profiles page. Thank you.
