National Initiative Joining with Amarillo Public Library

-
AMARILLO -- The Amarillo Public Library is teaming up with Read Aloud 15 MINUTES.

The program is a non-profit organization dedicated to making reading aloud every day for at least 15 minutes the standard in parenting and child care.

Youth Services Coordinator Cindi Wynia says joining the Read Aloud Campaign was an easy decision for the Amarillo Public Library. 

"The science is overwhelming. Parents, grandparents, and other caregivers are a childs first teachers, and reading aloud to children can make an enormous difference in a childs educational attainment."
 
Amarillo Public Library is kicking off the campaign with a Take the Pledge Challenge in October. Families who visit any of the Librarys five locations and commit to reading aloud to their kids for 15 minutes every day will receive a free reusable book bag along with information about how to begin-and continue-a daily reading aloud habit. 

All five Library locations will feature displays of great titles to read aloud, and families that take the 15 MINUTES pledge will be featured on the Librarys facebook page.
