BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Two members of The Buffalo Sabres took to he downtown Central Library to help encourage kids to read.
They’re helping to promote the public library system’s fourth winter reading challenge called “Do Re Me Read.”
Readers can pick out a book and read it up until March 20, then qualify for prizes by leaving a short book review on the library system’s website here.
The public library system Director Mary Jean Jakubowski said the more books a person reads, and the more reviews they write, the higher their chances are of getting a prize. The grand prize will be a Kindle Fire HDX eReader.
Marcus Folingo, left guard for the Buffalo Sabres, told kids he loved reading when he wasn’t on his skates as a kid. He said he loved reading and learning about the world around him.
