COLUMBUS-- State Representative Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) is partnering with local libraries to help promote her "Legislator for a Day" reading program. To participate in the program, children in grades 1st through 6th may stop by any participating library to pick up a bookmark that can be used to document five books they have read.
Each completed bookmark serves as an entry form. Winners will be selected from each participating library and will be invited to come down to Columbus with their parents and spend a day at the Statehouse as a mock legislator.
"I am excited to work collaboratively with our local libraries of Hudson, Stow-Munroe Falls, Twinsburg, and Nordonia Hills to promote the importance of reading," Roegner said. "I want to encourage children to visit their local libraries so they might discover and embrace the joy of reading."
All participants need to have the bookmark completed and returned to one of the libraries by July 31 in order to qualify. Winners will be selected at random from each participating library. Winners will receive a tour of the Ohio statehouse, a private lunch with Representative Roegner and the opportunity to participate in a mock legislative session.
