While thinking that our county was ripe for her Whirlikids Book Festival, Sara Carr doesn’t fail to recognize gratitude towards author Sara Mlynowski for suggesting the possibility of a book event of this magnitude. “It was a given,” said Sara Carr. In our geographical area, there aren’t many book festivals that cater to early readers, and McIntyre’s is already a destination for the industry’s promotional tours. Plus, there is the fact of our area’s demographic boom. The Whirlikids Book Festival and all the other programs McIntyre’s hosts, are a response to our county’s growth and growing demands. After all, McIntyre’s story time hours, which run twice a week, host anywhere from 30 to 50 attendees per session.
