These programs, taking place in the rural service areas of Winkler, Culberson, and Brewster Counties in Texas, and Lea and Eddy Counties in New Mexico, aim to address the low literacy rates and promote the benefits of reading for children and families.

Special appearances by the renowned magician, Bronson Chadwick, who has captivated over 1,000,000 people across various live audiences. Bronson, a second-generation magician and former president of the Texas Association of Magicians, currently serves as the Regional Vice President of the Society of American Magicians. His performances are specially designed for family audiences, with a focus on enhancing literary skills for children in kindergarten through 6th grade.
