VSU-Read-FestVALDOSTA, GA — Valdosta State University’s Odum Library and Student Council of the International Reading Association will host Read Fest 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Friday, April 25, on the West Hall front lawn.

The annual event was originally scheduled for Friday, April 18, but due to a forecast of inclement weather, officials decided to postpone it for a week.

Michael Holt, reference librarian and an assistant professor at the library, noted that 276 prekindergarten students from area schools are scheduled to attend the eighth annual event. The children will spend the morning participating in a variety of activities, including puppet shows, games, crafts, read-along stories, coloring, and music.

“The purpose of the event is to promote literacy in our community through getting children excited about reading at an early age,” Holt said.

VSU has hosted Read Fest since 2006. The event is part of the campus’s celebration of National Library Week, April 13-19.
