Pawtucket Holds First Annual Reading Weeks
PAWTUCKET- The City of Pawtucket will be hosting the first annual Pawtucket Reading Weeks to encourage students to have fun through reading.
Beginning April 12 through April 23, the City will promote a different activity related to reading Monday through Friday. The activities include book readings with Mayor Grebien, Fire Chief Sisson, and Pawtucket Police Detective Lefebvre and Watson, a feature of the Black History Month Contest winning poem, suggested reading lists, and more.
“We want to encourage each of our students to get lost in a book,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “Since we all can’t get away for April vacation this year and many of us are inside, now is the perfect opportunity to pick up your favorite book and read. We want to inspire our students to love and become passionate about reading and bring awareness of the importance of reading through fun activities.”
The calendar of activities, posts, and videos can be found on the City of Pawtucket Mayor’s Office Facebook page.
In addition to the engaging reading activities, the City will be hosting a book drive which encourages residents to donate their used books at one of the two book-drop locations: the second floor by the Mayor’s Office Monday-Thursday 9am to 4pm or the Police Station after City Hall closes. All of the books collected will be donated to the Pawtucket Public Library, and local companies Discover Books and Books Are Wings.
Please contact Constituent Liaison Kassandra Florez at email@example.com with any questions.
