Several football players will attend a special reading session at Besore Memorial Library on Saturday, Feb. 23. The "Read with Tri-State Storm Football Players" program will begin at 10 a.m.

Children will be able to select the football books, or some on other topics, for the players to read. Gordy Schlotter, Tri-State Storm team chaplain and ESPN radio host will also be present to read. Refreshments will be provided. Children of any age are invited to attend.

A Teddy Bear Sleepover will be held Friday, March 1 until Saturday, March 2. It will celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America Day. Children are invited to bring in a teddy bear or any of their favorite character toys, such as Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Spiderman, LEGO creation or favorite dolly, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday.

The toys will spend the night in the library. Children can come back at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning to pick-up their friends, watch a PowerPoint of what happened during their stay at the library and then enjoy a light breakfast including Green Eggs and Ham. Children of all ages are welcome to participate.
