Nittany Lion Reads program heading out to area libraries this spring
Penn State Mont Alto is pleased to announce the launch of its Nittany Lion Reads program to promote reading among area children through the local library. Children will be treated to a story reading, a meet-and-greet session and picture-taking time with the Penn State Nittany Lion. Each participant will also have the opportunity to create a picture frame for their photo and to participate in games offerings. A highlight of the program for the children may be the story of Ben and Jerry's ice cream at Penn State, along with free ice cream.
The program is free of charge and will visit the following Franklin County libraries as follows soon:
- March 5th, 10 a.m., Fort Loudon Library
- March 12th, 10 a.m., Grove Family Library
- March 19th, 11 a.m., Coyle Free Library
April 9th, 11 a.m., Lilian S. Besore Memorial Library
Each program will be approximately one hour in length. "Reading as a child can be the first step to expanding vocabulary and comprehension," says Sarah Sultzbaugh, student director of the Nittany Lion Reads program. "It also strengthens skills necessary to one day succeed in college."
