Read Aloud Nebraska

Proud to be a Read Aloud Community!

The Bennington Public Library joins several communities across the state that have earned the designation of “Read Aloud Community” for 2008/2009. Read Aloud Communities are required to promote November as “Read Aloud to a Child Month” among citizens throughout the community as well as to engage in a variety of read-aloud activities throughout the year. The Bennington Public Library has made the commitment to promote reading aloud to children as one of the most important things adults do to help children improve their vocabulary, enhance listening skills and develop positive attitudes toward reading and learning,” says Mark Claussen, chairman of Read Aloud Nebraska. “We are proud to support “Read Aloud Communities” throughout Nebraska as they share the joy of reading with people of all ages.” The “Read Aloud Communities” program is an initiative of Read Aloud Nebraska, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “promote healthy, successful children and families through reading aloud”.
