Local educators, librarians and literacy advocates hope so. A month-long program called Burke Reads will distribute about 500 free copies of “Fahrenheit 451”, which serves as the theme of this year's community reading program.
Burke Reads runs until Oct. 24 and includes a speakers forum, book discussions, a seminar, a day outdoors, a movie and a full immersion interactive installation. It is sponsored by the Burke County Public Library System, Library Foundation of Burke County, WPCC, Morganton Day School, Burke County Literacy council, North Carolina School for the Deaf and Burke County Public Schools. VanNoppen Marketing was delighted to create the Burke Reads logo, posters, banners, a blog
and other collateral to support the program.
