 The 4th Annual "MY BOOK DAY" celebration of reading for all of Eden Prairie's 700 first-grade students will be held Friday, May 9th, 2008. This special day will be staged at the Eden Prairie City Center located at 8080 Mitchell Road, Eden Prairie, MN. 

A highlight of this event will be the presentation of a personalized high quality hardcover book as a gift to each of the children.  In addition, they will also receive their very own Hennepin County Library card along with hands-on training on how to use it.  As a key part of the celebration, "Celebrity Readers" will share time with the children in small groups reading their new books.  Joining us as Celebrity Readers will be EP Police Officers, EP Fire Dept. Officers, US Military Personnel, EP City Council Members, EP School Board Members and EP High School Students.

There will also be music provided by the High School Orchestra.  Additionally, our special guest will once again be John Jorgensen, National Founder of this reading program, from Casper Wyoming.

Reading is one of the most valuable life skills children need to master.  Please join us in contributing to this important cause. We are proud to be recognizing and celebrating the "first year" reading accomplishments of our city's first-grade students.
