Success in Binghamton!

Stories continue to pour in from Read for the Record events across the world.  In Binghamton, New York, Pearson people from the Kirkwood Distribution Center read to 435 children at the Binghamton University Nature Preserve, as volunteers led various arts and crafts activities, passed out refreshments, and joined the children during a reading by Star Latronica, Director of the Four County Library System. Binghamton University Environmental Studies students, with support of Pearson volunteers and Fran Corea, led the children on a guided tour of the nature preserve, where they observed many species including frogs, geese, salamanders, and (fittingly) caterpillars, as well as a true beaver dam and beaver lodge.

New York State Senator Tom Libous issued a proclamation declaring October 8, 2009, “Read for the Record Day” in the 52nd Senate District.
