VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Rainy weather didn't stop Valdosta State University's 10th annual Read Fest, as little readers filled VSU's Odom Library.
Almost 250 Pre-K students from schools across the region participated in reading, puppet shows, and art and crafts.
Organizers say the event is a way to get students interested in reading at a young age.
"To teach a love of learning and reading to promote literacy at a young age," says Brett Williams VSU Reference Librarian.
Students and faculty helped put on the event.
