Readers are Leaders celebrate Black History Month tonight

POSTED: 02/19/13 12:30 PM

St. Maarten –  This evening at 5.30 p.m. the Readers are Leaders Club will be presenting a cultural event to celebrate Black History Month in song, poetry, and dance at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library’s lobby.

Readers are Leaders is a reading program organized and supported by the library and the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise. The goal is to promote literacy specifically among high school students and to encourage readers to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas through writing. The participants are challenged to read a number of books and submit reports about the books they read.

The recently elected Readers are Leaders board has been working hard to make this event an exciting one. Snack and drinks will be available to the audience members directly after the presentation.

Students interested in joining the Readers are Leaders Club can contact the library at 542 29 70 or join their FaceBook page at http://www.facebook.com/readers.a.leaders.
