Saturday's rainfall didn't stop families from coming out to the Macon County Public Library on Saturday for Read2Me's annual parent training event.
About 20 families stopped by the library and participated in crafts from the Western Mountain Reading Council, bicycle safety information and goodies from Smoky Mountain Bicyles and free books from Read2Me.
The annual parent training events, which are held each fall, are part of Read2Me's initiative to increase public awareness on the importance of raising a reader.
This year's event, themed "Roll Into Reading" featured crafts, music and stories about bicycles, buses and cars. Children were even able to visit with Ralph the Read2Me therapy dog.
