UNDATED - "Everyday Reading Heroes" is the theme of this year's Llama Llama Read-A-Rama, an event to educate children and families on the importance of literacy.  The event will begin on Thursday, with a pajama party at the St. Cloud Public Library from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Kids can enjoy many activities such as crafts, snack time, live llamas and story time.

Throughout the weekend, volunteers will be reading to children at more than 30 community reading and activity sites.

On Sunday, April 15, Barnes & Noble will host a fundraising to benefit Imagination Library.
