[ARCHIVED] Village Council and Staff Participates in "Read for the Record" Event in Palm Springs


Members of the Palm Springs Village Council, Village Staff, and Volunteers read the book "Not Norman" to nearly 1,000 children as part of the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County's "Read for the Record" Event on Thursday, October 22nd.

The Reading Contingency wore their custom fish hats made by Children's Librarian Mary Helen Sakellarios as they visited and read to Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders at Palm Springs Elementary, C.O. Taylor/Kirklane Elementary, and St. Luke Catholic School, as well as to Pre-kindergarten children at Kid's College and Miss Anne's Montessori School.

The book they read, "Not Norman" is about a goldfish that wasn’t exactly the kind of pet the boy in the story had in mind. He wanted a different kind of pet- one that could run and catch, or chase strings and climb trees, a soft furry pet to sleep on his bed at night. Not Norman. But when he tries to trade Norman he comes to realize he may be a better friend than he thought.
