OUR PROGRAMS

At Lectura Lounge, we offer a wide variety of programs dedicated to literacy, multilingualism, and community-building. All of our offerings are free to the community.
Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies

Volunteers read in their dominant language to participants whose primary language is opposite theirs. Build confidence, sharpen listening skills, boost imagination and vocabulary, and make friends! A complimentary light meal is served before each session. Join an upcoming session!

Witty Writers

A welcoming, cozy gathering for writers, nonwriters, and in-the-closet writers! An award-winning local author and a youth writer for Neighbors of Park City and Neighbors of Heber Valley magazines will facilitate each workshop, with 2-3 guest speakers enlisted for each 6-week session. Each witty writer will contribute their work to a published compilation and have the opportunity to participate in a spoken-word performance for our community. Click here to sign up!

Storytime

Interactive Storytime With a Local Author

Park City children’s author Melissa Marsted has graced the Lounge with her series of books about Utah’s national parks and wildlife, complete with storyboard posters and puppets, followed by mix-mingling and a mini charcuterie spread. Shoot a note to info@caseyandcharleys.org if you’d like to be notified of future readings.

Games & Grub

Games & Grub

Every Friday afternoon, middle schoolers, homeschoolers, and even unschoolers stop by to play noisy games such as Lotería (Spanish bingo), Taco Gato Cabra Queso Pizza, Twister, and The Floor Is Lava! We also tackle 1,000-piece puzzles or host scavenger hunts for the littles in our community. The frolic lasts from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Join an upcoming session!

Junior Ambassadors

Our first junior representatives, Greta Filippone and Mara Barth, recently sorted and categorized dozens of book donations at the Lounge and will be helping with outreach and marketing, as well as sharpening up their leadership skills via opportunities to run some of the Lounge’s program sessions.
