“The Lehigh University Child Care Center is looking to continue its successful faculty/staff reading program where interested faculty and staff come to the center and read books/stories to the children.  We will run the program on the following dates for the fall semester:  September 19, October 3, 17, 31, and November 14.  The time would be 11:00 am on these Wednesdays and the reading would take approximately ½ hour.

Feel free to sign up for one date or multiple dates.  We are targeting 5-6 readers per session and would like to accommodate as many faculty/staff who express interest.  We would also be interested in teaming people up where two faculty/staff read one book together to the children if the interest level in this program is high this fall.

If interested in participating in this reading program, please contact, Louise Adams at 610-758-KIDS(5437) or via email at laa3.
