Perry Memorial Library is bringing tennis back to the gallery for a fun-filled event that gets kids learning about the sport through reading and exercise.
Melody Peters, the library’s youth services director, said a crew from Edmonds Tennis and Education Foundation is taking a second swing at a workshop designed for young people ages 5-18. They aced last year’s event, and Peters said they’ll be back this year to serve up some more fun.
The Tennis Book Read takes place on May 31 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
And, not to worry, there will be tennis racquets in the gallery, she said.
“They tell me they have it all under control,” Peters said, reassuringly.
ETEF volunteers will be on hand to work with the young people to learn the basics of tennis.
The Edmonds family established the nonprofit youth development organization in 2018 and uses the game of tennis to provide academic and athletic opportunities to underserved youth.
