HARROLD VISITS PROSPECT HEIGHTS FOR READ TO SUCCEED PROGRAM


December 29, 2015

Chicago Wolves defenseman Peter Harrold will visit Prospect Heights Public Library on Tuesday, Jan. 5, for the “Read to Succeed” program, presented by Butternut and J.U.L.I.E. Call 811.

The 32-year-old Harrold, a Boston College graduate who spent much of the last nine seasons in the National Hockey League, will speak to children at 4 p.m. at the library located at 12 N. Elm Street.

The Read to Succeed program teaches the importance of recreational reading and encourages children to use the many resources libraries offer. Harrold will discuss the benefits of reading outside the classroom and reveal how it played an important part in his life as a student and continues to matter as a professional athlete and as a father.

Participants can win prizes — including Wolves ballcaps, sunglasses, and tickets to upcoming games — 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.
