Volunteers Help District 'Read for the Record"
On November 7, the Bibb County School District partnered with the United Way of Central Georgia to highlight the importance of early literacy with Read for the Record. In all, 301 volunteers read the book "Thank You, Omu!" to more than 9,000 students at Bibb County schools to help break a reading record for the most people reading the same book on the same day around the world. Volunteers included high school athletes, professional organizations, college professors and many more.
"Everyone agreed that this year’s book was a fun way to highlight the importance of sharing, caring, and reading," said Michelle Lenderman, Director of Media Services. “We want to give a special thank you to our partners who made this event possible and each of our reader volunteers who read at a school for the 2019 Read for the Record event!”
