GUYS READ

The Thomas Beaver Free Library’s mission is to create opportunities for the citizens of our community to gather, learn, connect and grow by providing resources to assist in the pursuit of lifelong learning in order to lead a fulfilled and enjoyable life.

The Ackerman family has provided funding for The Pat Ackerman “Guys Read” Program for Young Boys through the Thomas Beaver Free Library.  The Program is designed to teach and reinforce the love of reading over the summer. In addition, the Program provides an opportunity for Danville High School male athletes to assist by becoming mentors to their younger counterparts.  “Guys Read” mentors will have a direct impact by showing that young men read and that reading can be fun. 

Boys who are entering third grade to sixth grade can come to the Library to sign up for the program or can complete the form attached.  The participants will meet with Danville’s High School sports players and will read together and discuss what they like to read.  Light refreshments will be provided.  The program will run from 1:00 to 3:00 pm each Wednesday starting June 24th and ending August 12th.  

The Program will be held at the Peters Community Room at the Thomas Beaver Free Library at 205 Ferry Street, Danville, PA.  Questions can be directed to Edward Oberholtzer, Library Director, at 570-275-4180 or to tbfldirector@ptd.net.
