Hundreds of School Children to Participate in

Read for the Record @ Central Library

When: Tomorrow, Thursday, October 22, at 10:30 a.m.

Where: Mason O. Damon Auditorium, Downtown Central Library
Enter from Clinton St. between Washington & Ellicott streets

 Students from Buffalo-area schools will join more than 2.5 million children across the world to celebrate “Read for the Record” tomorrow, Thursday, October 22 at 10:30 a.m. in the Auditorium of the Central Library in downtown Buffalo.

 Kelly Dudzik, journalist at WGRZ TV, will read the delightful children’s story “Not Norman: A Goldfish Story,” written by Kelly Bennett and illustrated by Noah Z. Jones.  Students from Buffalo Public School #32 – Bennett Park Montessori and Enterprise Charter School will attend the morning program which is also free and open to the public. 

“Read for the Record,” now in its tenth year, is the world’s largest shared reading experience designed to promote early education learning for preschoolers. This is also the tenth year Buffalo & Erie County Public Libraries have participated.  

The 37 Buffalo & Erie County Public Libraries remind parents to spend at least 15 minutes each day reading aloud to their young children because research shows reading is the single most important thing you can do to help prepare a child for school and lifelong learning.  To learn more about the Library System, visit www.BuffaloLib.org.
