Elrich Celebrates Read Across America Day with County Youth

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, Councilmembers Gabe Albornoz and Will Jawando participated in National Education Association’s Read Across America Day, which is the nation’s largest celebration of reading. The Greater Washington Community Foundation organized Montgomery County’s celebration, which was held at the Wheaton Library and Community Recreation Center located at 11701 Georgia Ave.

Young County readers joined Elrich, Albornoz and more than 45 million readers, both young and old, from across the country to pick up a book and read. The event featured the children’s books “Should I Share My Ice Cream?” by New York Times best-selling author Mo Willems and Book Fiesta!,” which is the bilingual story of Children’s Day written by Pat Mora.
