Edmundson and Cannone visit local libraries on Jan. 7

December 31, 2013

Chicago Wolves defenseman Joel Edmundson and center Pat Cannone will appear at Chicago-area libraries on Tuesday, Jan. 7, as part of the 19th season of the “Read to Succeed” program, presented by Butternut Bread and J.U.L.I.E., Call 811 Before You Dig.

Edmundson will first appear at 4:30 p.m. at the Midlothian Public Library, located at 14701 S. Kenton Ave. in Midlothian. Following that, he will be appearing at Blue Island Public Library. He will start his second program at 6:30 p.m. at 2433 York St. in Blue Island.

Cannone, a University of Miami (Ohio) graduate, will appear at the Park Forest Public Library. His program will start at 5 p.m. at 400 Lakewood Blvd. in Park Forest.

The “Read to Succeed” program teaches the importance of recreational reading and encourages children to use the many resources that libraries have to offer. Edmundson and Cannone will speak about the benefits of reading outside the classroom and discuss how it plays an important part in their lives as professional athletes.

Participants can win prizes — including Wolves hats, beanie pucks, and tickets to upcoming games — for setting and achieving reading goals.

Throughout the season, more than 17,000 children will participate in the program, with Wolves players making appearances at select libraries throughout the Chicago area.
