Bunch Library and Bridges to Belmont Host Read Across America Event

Bunch Library, Bridges to Belmont and the Office of Multicultural Learning & Experience recently hosted 42 sixth graders from Jere Baxter Middle School for Read Across America Day. Dr. Amy Hodges-Hamilton, Department of English, started the day off with a presentation on “The Power of Words” using examples and inspiration from Dr. Maya Angelou.
Students wrote about their own experiences when the power of words helped them and when they were able to use words to help and encourage others by “being a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.” Students were then able to design a graphic novel cover based on the importance of words and reading.
This was followed by a book fair where 87 books were given to participants. At the end, Jere Baxter students asked engaging questions to a panel of Bridges to Belmont students about their college experience and what it took to get to college.
