Families participate in Read to Soar Program

Area youth recently graduated from the Read to Soar Reading Program at the Natchitoches Parish Library. Brenda Braxton-Forest won the trophy for the best parent portfolio. Aby Joe Randolph, Conner Braxton, and Ellie Norwood won awards for perfect attendance. Ten families signed-up for the event, but up to 15 families per cohort is allowed. Each week, each family receives five free books, a caregiver lesson to promote literacy, and snacks and craft activities to coincide with the story of the week.

The program is free of charge. If you are interested in participating in the program, or interested in having the program at your school, daycare, or church contact Kimberly Smith at 318-652-6400!
