“It’s important we have that community involvement and the students love to be read to,” Media Specialist Ann Bagley said. “[The students] have asked if we could do [Read with the One You Love Day] again and ... the teachers absolutely loved it as well.”
The event featured a guest reading to every classroom in the school.
“I thinks it’s really good for the kids to see these community members coming in ... just to see how important reading is and it’s neat for [the students] because these aren’t people they normally interact with either,” Bartow County Library System Youth Coordinator and guest reader Thomas Shalin said. “To have that, it’s just a good promotion for reading.”
