The Reading in the Park
Many of us learn that reading is fundamental to the education process. And some us know that losing yourself in a good book and allowing the story to let your imagination run wild is a great pastime for people of all ages, but especially for kids. Some local second graders from Alexandria Elementary School were afforded the opportunity to learn more about the pleasures of reading in the outdoors at the Margaret Woodruff Library at Alexandria Park during the second annual Reading In The Park event. The day included a tour of the original library by members of the Variosa Club and a fun scavenger hunt for the children. The Margaret Woodruff Library original library building is more than 100-years-old and was the first free public library in Calhoun County. Variosa Club members keep the library stocked by donating books for readers.
