Libraries Launch Reading Campaign Focused on Fathers

Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) encourages fathers to read to their children at least 15 minutes a day as part of its "Dad Up and Read" campaign that runs now through December 15. No registration is required for two free November events:

Vicki Wood, LCL Youth Services Coordinator, said a Harvard University study showed that children who are read to by their fathers are more likely to create imaginative discussion, resulting in positive cognitive and language development. "A cape and tights are not required for dads to be seen as heroes," Wood said. "Lincoln dads participating in the 'Dad Up and Read' campaign will achieve hero status in 15 minutes a day simply by reading aloud to their children."
