Last weekend, students spent the day with children from the local Easton community during the College’s 17th annual Literacy Day. The event was filled with activities, food, and performances based on the book, Ada Twist Scientist, by Andrea Beaty. Organized by the College’s America Reads-America Counts team, the program promotes enthusiasm for reading.

Literacy Day is one of dozens of programs sponsored by the Landis Community Outreach Center focused on helping local, national, and international communities. Volunteer opportunities include Alternative School Break, Hunger and Homelessness Week, Make a Difference Day, Best Buddies, Kids in the Community, Pre-Orientation Service Program, Lafapalooza: Lafayette’s National Day of Service, and many others.
