Family literacy promoted

November 10, 2003

Bainbridge - West Side Elementary school in Bainbridge is hosting its second annual family literacy and reading night on Monday. The purpose is to show children and parents how important reading is.

Principal Linda Lumpkin says, "It is our focus to promote wholesome family fun in reading. Literacy is one of the most important things that we feel like a family can do."

Kiwanis club President Ann Sellers agrees. She says, "We believe that reading is very important for children, reading to children, children reading to parents. It's just important to children's future in general, and we support that."

More than 600 people are expected. Every family who attends will receive a reading pack, which includes a free book.
