Spreading the Word
At top, Doug Bowen, right, president of Holyoke-based PeoplesBank, was the featured reader at the Link to Libraries Celebrity Read Aloud 2011-12 academic year program. Bowen read at Sullivan Elementary School in Holyoke to a most attentive and excited group of fifth-graders. Having grown up in the city, his presentation included a discussion with the students on the importance of being good readers and students, and what living and working in the community means to him both personally and professionally. Bowen is seen here with John Breish, principal of the Sullivan School, and several fifth-grade students.
Below, BusinessWest editor George O’Brien, left, was a guest reader earlier this month at the White Street School in Springfield. He’s seen here with fourth-grade teacher Jay Brunt and his class. For more information on the initiative, visit www.linktolibraries.org.
