Ezra Jack Keats Story and Craft

 During the Ezra Jack Keats Story and Craft program, librarians read aloud to children and lead a craft activity related to the themes and images of the book. At the end of each session, every child is given a free copy of one of Mr. Keats' books to keep. The program occurs every month at Central Library and four times a year at Arlington Library.

Check out Ezra Jack Keats' books at the Brooklyn Public Library.


These programs are made possible with generous support from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation.
