On Monday, January 15th County Kids Read and Sophiasburgh Public School launched a new partnership. Every student in the school received a free book to call his or her own. Classes came to the library to choose their books. Before choosing their books, the students were read a story and discussed how to choose a "just right book". When asked why reading was important, student answers included "to learn more information", "to have an adventure", and this from grade 4/5 student, "because reading is fun". And fun it was - a delightful morning!
Each month County Kids Read will visit the two or three classes to distribute free books and have fun.
