And lastly – a new focus to First Friday in 2021 is giving back to our community. This First Friday, the SouthSide Art District will be hosting a Children’s Book drive for the Cops ‘N’ Kids Reading Room in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday! Cops ‘N’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program’s mission is “Connecting Kids and Community through Literacy.” Their reading room, in partnership with Northampton Community College, provides a place for children and families to read together, share stories, and select a free book to take home. Police officers, high school and college students, community volunteers, and various community organizations are part of the programs that take place in the Reading Room. They will be collecting new and gently used Children’s Books at Molly's Irish Grille that evening from 5 - 8 .p.m.! For your donation, donors will receive a FREE SouthSide Arts District T-shirt!
