The Business of Reading Festival is on! Join us from October 24-October 28.

The Business of Reading Festival, a much anticipated community celebration of reading, will be held October 24-28 at the Conners Emerson School.  The Festival is supported by the Bar Harbor Rotary and relies on the generous support of the Bar Harbor PTSA and readers like you!  Over one hundred business men and women are needed to ensure the success of the Festival.  Participation requires only a half hour of your time, and most guest readers enjoy the experience as much as the students.  Volunteers are assigned to a specific classroom to explain how reading is important to their work and to share a favorite book or passage with the students.  The organizing committee hopes that people from all walks of life will consider volunteering their time to this worthy event.  If you are interested in sparking a child’s interest in reading or helping to make a connection between reading and your work, please join us the week of October 25th.  For more information or to register, please contact Siobhan Ryan (288-4467, ext. 1040) or  Click here to sign up electronically or download the PDF registration form below and return to the school.

Until October, Happy Reading!
