Alvernia READS passes its 1st semester with flying colors
During Alvernia READS' 1st semester, the program has reached out to over 200 children in the Reading area, giving away over 350 books at 9 different events. Nearly 50 members of the Alvernia community, faculty, staff and students alike, have dedicated their time to the success of this program and for all of this I am eternally grateful.
What's more, is the booming accomplishment of the Sigma Tau Delta book drive! In just over a month 455 books were collected from various places on campus. Again, I cannot thank those who organized the drive and those who contributed to it enough.

As the semester winds down, we've made our last fall visit to Tyson-Schoener and we opened up a reading room to the community at the Goggleworks 2nd Sunday. We had a great big room to house games and crafts for families looking for weekend fun.
