Maryland Independent - - Community -

Charles County Pub­lic Li­brary staff Me­gan Bur­roughs and Suzanne Lee at­tended the an­nual Charles County Head Start end of the year fam­ily event at Re­gency Fur­ni­ture Sta­dium May 26. The event, called Read to Me, was spon­sored by Charles County Pub­lic Li­brary, Chick-Fil-A, For­ever Free Books, Tar­get and the Al Sul­li­van fam­ily. Each of the 113 Head Start chil­dren re­ceived a new book and a Chick-Fil-A cow. The pro­gram was cre­ated to en­cour­age chil­dren to read with their par­ents and to their cow dur­ing the sum­mer. In ad­di­tion to Read to Me, the Charles County Pub­lic Li­brary Out­reach Depart­ment goes to each Head Start class once per month to pro­vide a story time to the stu­dents.
