Fade to Books '19: Free Haircuts for Readers

Do you notice your child struggling with reading when they return to school in September? Freshen up their minds with the Fade to Books program, an innovative, incentive-based program. Montclair Public Library has collaborated with a group of barbers in the area to promote childhood reading in the summer months, by offering a free haircut to children who read a book aloud during their trip to the barbershop.


Mahir’s Unisex Barber Shop, Kayo’s Barber Shop, New Creations Barber Shop and Salon, and January’s Barber Shop have graciously agreed to participate in this promotion, which takes place from June 1st through September 8th. All Fade to Books participants will be eligible to enter in Montclair Public Library’s weekly drawings for a chance to win prizes. Be sure to call the barber shop ahead of time to ensure they will be able to make the proper accommodations.
