This Winter, Mark Cuban Challenged US to PAY IT FORWARD through READING!

Thank you to the FRIENDS OF THE NUTLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY for sponsoring this event.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the inaugural Nationwide Winter Reading Challenge. The children did amazing with their reading and I hope they enjoyed the challenge.
