Strong Partnerships make Strong Communities......
This morning, the staff of the Lee County Library partnered with the Lee County School District and representatives of city and county government to kick off the NEA's "Read Across American" campaign. The school district is sponsoring "Read Around Lee County" as their effort, and the day was proclaimed as such by the County Council, Bishopville City Council and various mayors around the county.
To help celebrate, the library hosted approximately 60 children from the Bishopville Primary School K4 class with a special guest appearance by our own Cat in the Hat, Brenda Brisbon. (We're talking wall-to-wall kids here!) The youngsters were thrilled to see THE CAT and had a great time talking with her and giving her lots of hugs!
Later, The Cat in the Hat with her sidekick to the Waffle House for refreshments before resuming her tour of the courthouse and the nursing homes. Needless to say, a great time was had by all!!
