[ARCHIVED] Judy B. McDonald Public Library Celebrates Jumpstart’s Read for the Record

(Nacogdoches, TX) – Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, will take place at the Judy B. McDonald Public Library on Thursday, October 3rd at 5:30 p.m. Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is an annual reading celebration that highlights the need for quality early education in America by mobilizing adults and children to set a record for the largest shared reading experience.

On Thursday, October 3rd, the Judy B. McDonald Public Library invites the community to join us as we read Otis by Loren Long. Children will also participate in mural drawing to reinforce the theme and message in the selected book.

”Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a call to action to Americans to recognize the need for significant early education,” said Crystal Hicks, assistant library director. “It is so important for children to start off on the right foot with reading. The public library is proud to support this campaign in Nacogdoches.”

For more information on this event, please contact Dawn Radnitzer at 936-559-2970.

Since the campaign’s inception in 2006, more than nine million people have joined local Jumpstart’s Read for the Record reading celebrations; Jumpstart has raised more than $8 million to support its year-round work in preschools in low-income neighborhoods.
