Ivy Leaf - Spring 2003

Read for 2003


Penn State Altoona took part in a worldwide reading event this past semester as it joined in celebration of Scholastic's Fourth Annual Global Literacy Initiative. Known as "Read For 2003," the fourth annual global reading celebration created by Scholastic Book Clubs helps unite kids, teachers and parents worldwide through the joy of reading. Millions of students from around the world read for 2003 seconds (or about 33 1/3 minutes). Students, faculty, staff and guests from Penn State Altoona also read to area children at noon in the Community Arts Center in celebration of the power of reading to delight, comfort and connect children.
