Montgomery Participates In Reading Time Out
On Wednesday, January 18th, Connecticut Sun guard Renee Montgomery traveled to the Waterford Public Library for a Reading Time-Out as part of the WNBA's Read to Achieve Program. After being greeted by Nadine Lipman, Head of Children's Services at Waterford Public Library and Daniel Steward, First Selectman for the Town of Waterford, Montgomery settled in with the kids to read a book.
Montgomery read "The Princesses Have A Ball," written by Teresa Bateman, to the group. After the story was finished, Montgomery spoke to the children about the importance of reading and her reading experience before answering questions from the audience about herself, the Sun and basketball in general. She also took photos with the children and signed autographs.
The WNBA's Read to Achieve Program is a year-round, league-wide initiative that promotes the values of reading and on-line literacy and encourages families and adults to read regularly with young children.
