Waynesboro Program Encourages Kids to Read

Posted: Updated:

Waynesboro Public Library is inviting families and caretakers to take part in a new reading program for small children.

The Book A Day program is part of a movement to get children up to 5 years old started on the right track. You just come to the library, register and then check out 30 books a month during the regular academic year.

Librarians say you can read to the kids at home or on site. 

"If we can encourage parents to begin establishing that behavior of reading a book, at least one book every day with your child, then we're hoping it will send kids into school prepared to succeed," said librarian Bethany Rose.

The library is also offering an incentive for all this: a free pizza from Pizza Hut and a prize for the kids.
