ECC co-hosts Read Across America 2013
Ellsworth Community College was one of the hosts of Read Across America 2013, and event that included participation from several local schools and at least 110 kids at the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast at Hy-Vee. Other sponsors included Robert Barlow Memorial Library, Doan Public Library in Alden, Iowa Falls-Alden Community Schools, and Iowa Valley Continuing Education.
All children who visited Hy-Vee on March 2 for the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast were allowed to pick one book to take home; students who completed a reading log through their school and returned it to the breakfast event were given two books to take home. The librarians reported that 104 reading logs were turned in, and 40 parents/teens registered to win a book. School participation included 47 from Pineview, 19 from Rock Run, 21 from Alden, 16 from Christian EduCare, and 1 from South Hamilton.
