WVU Parkersburg students to sponsor children’s story hour.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A college service honorary from West Virginia University at Parkersburg is sponsoring a weekly story hour at the Wood County Public Library.
For children of all ages, the 7 to 8 p.m. story hour will begin Thursday (Feb. 6) and meet weekly through April 24.
The free activity will be held in the library’s Children’s Room.
Members of the Sigma Omega chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and students from a Children’s Literature class taught by Dottie Bibbee, professor of journalism, will host the reading hour. Children will hear several books, make a craft and enjoy a snack.
This marks the third year that WVU Parkersburg students have hosted the story hour. Phi Theta Kappa intertwines its honor study topic with the story hour. This year’s theme is "Dimensions and Directions of Health: Choices in the Maze" and will include books and activities revolving around health and safety issues.
Phi Theta Kappa is a national honorary society for students in two-year colleges and is designed to promote scholarship and the development of citizenship, leadership and character among college students.
Additional information about the story hour may be obtained by contacting Mrs. Bibbee at the college, 424-8247.
