SCHMALTZ VISITS LINCOLNWOOD AND ELMWOOD PARK FOR CHICAGO WOLVES’ READ TO SUCCEED


January 8, 2016

Chicago Wolves defenseman Jordan Schmaltz will visit Lincolnwood Public Library and Elmwood Park Public Library on Wednesday, Jan. 13, to present the “Read to Succeed” program, presented by Butternut and J.U.L.I.E. Call 811.

The 22-year-old Schmaltz, who continues to take classes to complete his communications degree at the University of North Dakota while going through his first year as a professional hockey player, will speak to children at 4 p.m. in Lincolnwood (4000 W. Pratt Avenue) and 7 p.m. at Elmwood Park (1 Conti Parkway).

The Read to Succeed program teaches the importance of recreational reading and encourages children to use the many resources libraries offer. Schmaltz will discuss the benefits of reading outside the classroom and explain why it plays an important part in his life as a college student and as a professional athlete. One child at each library will get the chance to dress in a complete Wolves uniform.

Participants can win prizes — including Wolves ballcaps, sunglasses, and tickets to upcoming games at Allstate Arena — for setting and achieving reading goals.

Over the next four months, Wolves players will visit libraries throughout the Chicago area and more than 17,000 children will participate in Read to Succeed activities.
