Miss Literacy Promote Summer Reading

Although the school year is ending, it’s important to continue to read and learn throughout the summer. Shiela M. Keaise, Colleton County Memorial Library Children’s Librarian has visited schools throughout the county, acting in a role she refers to as “Miss Literacy.” She is using the role to promote the Summer Reading Program at the library, she said. “We would like to share encouraging words to our children to read during the summer months and Miss Literacy is the best person to do that,” said Keaise. “Miss Literacy’s skirt and sash were made by Fabric Artist, Bridget Murray,” she says.
Summer Reading Programs and all the activities at the county’s library are often free, she said. Most summer reading programs encourages kids to read whatever they want, which helps instill a love of reading. Studies show that kids who read for fun often out-perform kids who do not read for leisure, according to Keaise.
The library will have its Kick-Off Party on Friday, June 9 at 10:00 am. The party is featuring the Columbia Marionette Theatre, which is presenting, “The World of Anansi (The Spider.” Anyone who wants to attend may register online at www.colletonlibrary.org or by visiting the Colleton County Memorial Library/Mobile Library for the event. This event is sponsored by Colleton County Memorial Library and Friends, Coastal Community Foundation of SC/Beaufort Fund and Palmetto Rural Telephone Cooperative, Inc.
