Storytelling event to benefit Centre County preschoolers

Preschoolers are invited to a fun storytelling and storybook reading at 11 a.m. Feb. 2, at Webster's Bookstore & Café, 133 E. Beaver Ave. (The café is also accessible from an entrance along Humes Alley.)

Presented by some of State College's best -- representing the Pennsylvania Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, and Penn State's Education and Behavioral Sciences Library -- the readers include Steven Herb, Karla Schmit, Ellysa Cahoy and Sara Willoughby.

This Bright Start Fundraising Event will enthrall preschoolers while supporting preschool education for low-income children in Centre County at the Park Forest Day Nursery Preschool (PFDN), a school funded entirely by local contributions. Webster's will donate 25 percent of all book and other sales that day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. On-site donations will be accepted or you may mail your donation to PFDN "Bright Start," 1833 Park Forest Ave., State College, PA 16803.
