To encourage children to read, in 1985 the American Library Association started the Celebrity READ posters with pictures of some of the best known faces in the country. ALA then encouraged local libraries to prepare their own using local celebrities - and we have. There are two copies of each poster. One hangs in the Library and one goes to the celebrity. They have been extremely popular - both with the celebrities and with the children.
