Kingsbury's Family Reading Night


Kingsbury's English / Language Arts Committee partnered recently with the Sumter County Library for the annual event. This year, the committee paired literacy with the arts for a memorable "Meet Pete" celebration. Children and families enjoyed a read aloud with Pete the Cat and his pal, Christy Smith, director of children's services at the Sumter County Library, at right, with first-grader Takiyah Miller. Smith informed parents about the many ways that the library supports children's literacy learning through community programs. She also shared information about the Reading Buddies program, STEM Adventures and the much anticipated Summer Reading program offered through the library.
