UA BookStores at the Student Union Memorial Center hosts the Wildcats Advocating Literacy & Knowledge Children’s Storybook Character Hour on the first Saturday of every month (with some exceptions), offering educational reading and activities for children ages 2 to 5 years old, and a special in-person appearance by some of your favorite storybook characters. This WALK event is absolutely free and open to the public.
Overwhelming response to this event has urged the bookstore to provide two time slots for it – at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Parking in the Second Street Garage (directly across from UA BookStores at the Student Union Memorial Center, on Mountain Avenue just south of Speedway Boulevard) is usually available on the weekend at no cost. However, on weekends when the UA is hosting an athletic event or other high-profile event, the Second Street Garage may charge for parking. Parking fees will always be clearly displayed at the garage entry if they apply. In most cases, the entry gate will be up on Saturdays and Sundays, and garage entry and parking will be free.
Alternative free parking on the weekends is available behind the Speech and Hearing Sciences building on East Second and Palm Drive, lot #3039.
