Happy National Young Readers Week!

Education and OutreachEach year, the second week of November is celebrated as National Young Readers Week.  Here at Louisville Water, we are especially excited because 2023 marks the one-year anniversary release of our first children’s story, “Tapper’s Big Adventure: Where’s the Water?

The book centers around our mascot, Tapper, as he discovers the many ways that our customers use water every day.  Students and young readers also learn about the importance of a clean, dependable water source.

Over the past year, we have taken the book to schools, libraries, camps and more, reaching over 5,000 people with Tapper’s story.

“We have enjoyed sharing ‘Tapper’s Big Adventure’ with local schools and community partners.  It is a great teaching tool for young learners to understand the importance of our water, Louisville Pure Tap®, and how it keeps our community healthy, hydrated and working,” said Channa Newman, Manager of Community Relations.
