SouthBay Pavilion is proud to announce their 3rd Annual award-winning COOL KIDS READ event will be held at the mall's Center Court in celebration of World Literacy day on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 3pm – 6pm.

The event will feature book swap and book giveaways by the Carson Lions Club sponsored by the Molina Foundation, book fair featuring various authors, declamation performances hosted by the Carson Literacy Partnership Program, story time with Belle, book bag giveaway, face painting, balloon art, FREE vision screening and more!
