Students get free books and storytelling time at RCSD School #19

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — More than 100 students went to the “Snuggle Up And Read!” night at Rochester City School #19 on Thursday.

Children at the Dr. Charles T. Lunsford School and their families were invited to an evening of storytelling, hot cocoa, and a selection of free books to create their own libraries at home. The event celebrated National Family Literacy Month, a national initiative that encourages families to spend time reading together.

Advantage Federal Credit Union, a longtime partner with Rochester City Schools, gave students blankets and tote bags to carry home their new collection of books.
