This warmed my heart. It was a great event with nice turnout. All the kids left with a program, folder and could get an autograph.

Yes, Virginia, Hockey players can read.

P.S.
He has all his teeth. ;)

Actually the Amerks are sending players to several of the Monroe County Library System branches. Its a program they worked out with the branches. This was at the library where I had my first post-MLS library job, as part-time outreach Children's librarian.

It was a blast, and I was glad to see one of my wacky ideas in action, even though I did nothing to bring this program to fruition but egg on a few librarians years back. ;)

They've also added a neat twist, For every hattrick of books you read (3) a child under 12 gets a coupon for a free ticket to any Amerks home game. Each time they do that, they're entered into a drawing for 6 tickets to a game, and dinner in the President's luxury box.
