Library Reading

24-June-2019
   On Saturday-22-June the Bogota Public Library held its first Mighty Read event. This was an hour of Local officials taking time to read books to the young Students of the Borough. The Children sat on the floor in a arc to listen to various stories read to them. Library Director Chelsea Coleman started the hour of reading with " Otter in Space"  She was followed by Bogota Mayor Chris Kelemen. Then came Bogota Police Chief Daniel Maye and after him was Isabel Bustamante from Bogota Beautiful. Ms. Bustamante's book was written in Spanish, which she translated  into English as she read. She mentioned that is a way to not only hear about other cultures, but to learn a new language at the same time. 
   At the halfway time Children's Director Tom Skrinch gave the listeners a chance to stretch legs by leading them in a Banana Dance. The re-energized audience then were ready for more stories.  Another Bogota Police Officer Lewis Dueñas stopped by to read before going out on Patrol.  The Bogota Board of Education President Lisa Kohles shared a book about the "Cat in the Hat" in space. Then Amrau Bustamante, also from Bogota Beautiful,  read the story about how two stray dogs in Moscow became the first mammals to successfully fly into space and returned safely.  
   The theme of the books that were chosen were about Outer Space to coincide with the Libraries Summer Reading program "A Universe of Stories".  This is now running until Saturday -7-September, and open to the public. They have three categories: Kids, upto age 11. Teens from ages 12-7, and Adult for everyone over 18 years of age.  There will be weekly prizes available for anyone who registers at:  https://bogotapubliclibrary.org/summerreading/
