Read Across America

The National Museum of the United States Air Force will be observing Read Across America Day on Feb 28 and March 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. both days.  Students in grades 2 and 3 are invited to attend the Museum and listen to stories read to them by volunteers, both civilian and military, from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  Volunteer participation is coordinated by Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Educational Outreach Office.
