Adrienne Bailon, former Cheetah Girl and star of a new series on the Style network, read to kids at the kick-off celebration for Brooklyn Public Library's Summer Reading Program.


Brooklyn Public Library kicked off its annual Summer Reading program June 7 with a free, family-friendly festival at Grand Army Plaza’s Central Library. The day included concerts, performances, and readings by celebrity supporters.
