Broadhurst visits south suburban libraries on March 4

Chicago Wolves forward Terry Broadhurst will appear at the Bridgeview Public Library and Orland Park Public Library on Wednesday, March 4, to continue the 20th season of the “Read to Succeed” program, presented by Butternut Bread and J.U.L.I.E., Inc.

The 26-year-old BROADHURST, who grew up in Evergreen Park and Orland Park and attended the University of Nebraska (Omaha), will start his first program at 4 p.m. at 7840 W. 70th Street in Bridgeview before his second outing at 7 p.m. at 14927 Ravinia Avenue in Orland Park.

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

Participants can win prizes — including Wolves knit hats, pennants, 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.
