Thanks for Celebrating with Us!!
We'd like to thank everyone who helped us celebrate Project Read's Silver Anniversary on October 27th at the Main Library. We would not be celebrating 25 years of service were it not for the dedicated learners, tutors, library staff, and community partners who have been part of the Project Read family.
A special thank you to the learner-tutor teams who served as program MC's for the evening: William Barrett & Andrew Belschner; Noel Hernandez & June Nakajima; Mario ST. Rose & Marianne Oest; Monica Barrera & Anjolie Chidambaram; Ruby Trejo & Linda Dusanic, and former Project Read learner Carlos Soto.
A highlight of the evening was a special music and interpretive dance performance based on the writing of a former Project Read learner. Cuddles the Cockroach, a four-part story, is one of the selections contained in the Silver Anniversary Collection, a book of learner writing selected from two decades of submissions to the Project Read Update newsletter. If you were unable to attend the anniversary event, please come by the office and pick up a free copy of this fabulous book.
