For the past 18 years, the Kane County Law Library has invited judges to read to children as part of Family Reading Night. I love covering this event. The children are encouraged to wear their pajamas, and – of course – the judges wear their pajamas as well.
I think it’s a great way for kids and their parents to see a softer side of the judges and the county’s judicial system. You could see the wonder in the children’s faces as they entered one of the courtrooms at the Kane County Judicial Center in St. Charles.
