Rev Up to Read!

Posted: Updated:
Columbia County, GA -

WJBF spent Saturday afternoon at the Columbia County Library helping students "Rev up to Read!"

Mary Morrison, John Hart, Archith Seshadri, and Ashley Bridges read their favorite childhood stories to local kids.  There was also a magician and his pet rabbit, plus super heroes with a giant comic book.

One of the superheroes, "Wolverine," says, "These costumes are hot, but when you see their faces light up, you forget about that.  You know that you're making a difference in that young person's face, you think, 'I really got excited about reading because this one time Wolverine came and read to me with a giant comic book.' It holds a special place in our heart, because when you see a young person's face light up, you can't put a price on that."

"Rev Up To Read" is part of WJBF's "Children First" program.  Our anchors hope you'll pick up a book and help a kid read.
