"Journey Into Reading" just gave away their 30,000th book!
Journey Into Reading has given away over 30,000 books to children!
Every Thursday from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM volunteers read to young children in the mall (near Kay Jewelers). After hearing the book read, the child picks a free book to take home. Adults who attend are given tips on how to read to children and given reasons why they should read to their children.
The Association for the Education of Young Children (AEYC), Even Start, Peru Retired Teachers, Child Care Council, Head Start, RSVP, CFE Library Systems, Plattsburgh Library, Literacy Volunteers of Clinton County, and Champlain Valley Reading Council are among the volunteers who helped with the Journey.
Join us at Champlain Centre every Thursday @ 4:30 PM for story hour and free children's books!!
