ECC Osgood Library Hosts Read Across America
Wednesday / February 7, 2018
Ellsworth Community College Osgood Library in conjunction with Iowa Falls Community Chest, Hy-Vee, Iowa Falls Kiwanis Club, Iowa Falls/Alden School Libraries, Dr. Grace O. Doane Public Library, Barlow Memorial Library and Green Belt Bank and Trust are sponsoring a Read Across America event Saturday, March 3th from 9 to 11 am. Students from area schools received a reading log allowing them to keep track of the amount of time they read each day for a week.
On Saturday March 3th, children and their families are invited to come and eat breakfast at the Iowa Falls Hy-Vee. The breakfast will be $2.99 each and will include green eggs and ham, toast and juice. Each child that comes to Hy-Vee from 9-11 will receive a free book donated Iowa Falls Community Chest and Iowa Falls Kiwanis. If they bring the completed reading log to Hy-Vee, they will receive an additional book. There will also be local ‘celebrities’ reading to the children.
“This is a great community outreach event to encourage children to read,” said Sandra Greufe, Library Service Manager at ECC. “We would like to say, ‘Thank you’ to the Iowa Falls Community Chest, Hy-Vee, and Iowa Falls Kiwanis for their support. The program would not be successful without their support.”
