Friends of Southern Pines Public Library have decorated their tree in the Town’s Parade of Trees with the message “Read, Read, Read.” Visitors to the tree will find coupons. They may bring one to the Library at 170 W. Connecticut Ave. and redeem it for a free children’s book to give as a gift this season.
Having books in the home and sharing reading time together is essential for language development and helps children be successful in their school careers.
In support of Growing Great Readers Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, the Friends and the Library encourage the community to give the gift of reading to children for the holidays.
The tree is located on Pennsylvania Ave. between the Coalition and the Douglass Center.
