Making books come alive!
The Decatur Public Library loves showing kids how READiculously fun reading books aloud and together can be! READiculous brings books to life with their story-acting program.
Book a Show
READiculous brings the library to your school and makes books come alive. READiculous encourages kids to grab their grownup and visit the library, as well as get a library card of their own.
And here is something else READiculous! Our program is FREE to Decatur schools!
Performances Tailored to Grade Level
- Preschool - You might not know that we can also perform for preschool children. We have shortened our show to anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes using preschool favorites!
- Kindergarten-Sixth Grade - We present a 30-minute program geared toward K through 6th graders.
Schedule a Performance
We are booking for the 2022/2023 school year. Schedule a READiculous visit at your school, or a presentation to your organization, by calling (217) 424-2900 ext. 5 or emailing READiculous@decaturlibrary.org.
Every year from 2011 to 2019 we launched a new show, which we performed for our DPL Summer Reading Programs and at area grade schools and other venues. We are excited to return with a new program summer 2022! You can see videos from over 60 different books performed at past programs on our YouTube channel: Really READiculous.
