Reading: Its FUNdamental
Library hosts yearly program to make reading fun
W 051012 RIF
Portal Elementary second graders Sierra Clifton, right, and Jordan Kirkland, both 8, find a cozy spot underneath a table during Thursday's Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program at the Statesboro Region Library.
Hundreds of Bulloch County students were offered a break from class Thursday, and the opportunity to dive into a good book. As part of a two-week program to promote interest in reading, prekindergarten through second-grade students from Portal Elementary were bused to the Statesboro Regional Library, where they took in a puppet show and received free books. Children were also given time to read with teachers and local volunteers during the annual Reading Is Fundamental book distribution event, which will wrap up a two-week run today at the Statesboro library.
