By the end of the day, plans were being made for a return visit from the football players. Next time, they are bringing footballs to throw around with the kids!

On October 20th, the Pittsburg Library invited the Pittsburg High School football team to come to our El Pueblo Children's Library and read stories to the children! The Pittsburg Library had received a grant from the Superbowl 50 Fund's "Re(a)d Zone" to fund this activity and to provide $2,500 in children's books to our libraries. Amazing! A HUGE "thank you" to Ginny Golden, manager of the Pittsburg Library!!
