CHEYENNE, Wyo. – First Lady Carol Mead is continuing to travel Wyoming promoting literacy. Her next event is Friday, March 15th from 11:15 to 11:45 am where she will read to children during a special Story Time at the Gillette Library.
“I am looking forward to being in Campbell County – meeting children and enjoying a few good books,” said Mrs. Mead. “I am excited for this opportunity because it is a chance to get together with others and share a love of reading.” Since becoming First Lady, Mrs. Mead has enjoyed reading to children throughout the state at schools and local libraries. She also encourages parents and children to spend at least 20 minutes a day reading together at home and is working with the University of Wyoming to establish a statewide literacy research center and clinic. These activities are part of her children’s issues initiative, which includes promoting literacy, the arts, and healthy lifestyles among Wyoming’s kids.
All children are welcome to join the First Lady during the March 15th Story Time from 11:15 to 11:45 am at the Gillette Library.
