Guest Reader Program
The Guest Reader program is for students in kindergarten through grade 5. Every spring, from January through May, business leaders, city officials and local citizens spend 20 to 40 minutes per week in an elementary school classroom reading aloud to the children. The program is intended to expose students to the pleasures of reading and to present a positive reading role model. Reading to children brings enjoyment to both the readers and the students, and reinforces the idea that reading is fun for everyone.
