95 PAL youngsters from across the City have spent the past two months falling in love with reading. After completing four book reports, Reading Program participants were rewarded with a celebration at Temple University on February 28th.

To kick off the program, PAL centers received new books to add to their libraries. Each participant was required to read four books, though many avid readers far exceeded that goal. Due to their literacy achievements, the young bookworms were treated to a fun night at a Temple Men’s Basketball game.

PAL thanks Athole G. Jacobi, M.D. for sponsoring such a fun and worthwhile program.
