Read with a Rep Day
August 22, 2013
Celebrate early literacy on September 5th at our North Independence Branch as we welcome Representative Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri's 5th district. Rep. Cleaver will join us for Read with a Rep Day at 1:30 p.m. and share books with children and their families. This program will give children the opportunity to meet an influential member of their community and show them that shared reading is an important foundation block to early literacy.
"The single most important economic development in all of greater Kansas City is the ability of children to read at grade level by grade three. Having someone of the stature of Representative Cleaver here underscores the importance of reading for future success," said Steven Potter, Library Director and CEO. At Mid-Continent Public Library, we are making early literacy a focus now to help insure a more successful future for Kansas City.
