Sixth Annual Read Fest

VALDOSTA -- Odum Library will celebrate Read Fest from 9:30 - 11 a.m. on Friday, April 13, on the VSU front lawn. Read Fest is an annual event to mark National Library Week.

Each year, Odum Library invites students from local elementary schools to come and experience the library in a fun and educational way. The library offers stations with activities including hula hoops, making bookmarks, a puppet read-along, temporary tattoos, coloring, jump rope, ice cream, and much more!

Volunteers from Odum Library, the Education Department and several other campus organizations will lead the children in these activities. Sponsored by the American Library Association, National Library Week celebrates the contributions of the nation’s libraries and librarians and encourages library use and support.
