I had about three second of fame last night on KPRC-TV Channel 2 (the local NBC affiliate station). The story was about the success of the Houston Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. No video posted, but a web-equivalent story is posted on their site:
“Last year, we had 20,000 kids and teens register for the program. As of mid-July, we had more than 60,000,” said Sandra Fernandez with the Houston Public Library.
“Studies show that children who read during the summer retain more of what they learned in the previous school year and are better prepared to start the next school year,” said Fernandez.
The Summer Reading Program continues through Friday, August 1st.
