Ride to Read, a family bike ride event on the Raccoon River Valley Trail, was moved indoors on Sunday, Sept. 30 because of rain. The event was held inside the Forest Park Museum.


Storytellers were located throughout the museum. Kids listened to stories, ate snacks and received a signed copy of the children’s book, “Spin,” from author Rebecca Janni.


Janni, of Johnston, made the trip to Perry with her dog, Mickey and son Jacob. Janni signed copies of “Spin” and read the book to the kids gathered for the first-annual Ride to Read event.


The event was a collaborative activity organized by the Friends of the Minburn and Perry Libraries.
