Rockin' Reader is a summer story time for younger children. 
District 191 principals and district staff read their favorite stories at the Nicollet Commons Park. Story time starts at 11:15 with stories geared for preschool through primary grade students. The whole family enjoys the sunshine and splash park. Many bring picnic lunches and stay for the Rockin' Lunch Hour concert sponsored by the City of Burnsville. 
This year, due to the COVID pandemic, our readers recorded video messages. You can watch them anytime you want on Facebook.
