State Rep. Mike Dovilla (R-Berea) will again partner with the Cuyahoga County Public Library for his “Legislator for a Day” reading program.
Children in grades one through six may participate in the program by reading five books and recording the titles on a special bookmark available at the four branches in Dovilla’s district: Berea Branch, North Royalton Branch, Olmsted Falls Branch and Strongsville Branch.
Children should return the completed bookmark to one of the participating branches no later than Friday, March 8. The completed bookmark serves as an entry form for each child, who will have the opportunity to be selected as a “Legislator for a Day.”
“By encouraging young people to read, this initiative will provide opportunities for them to learn more about our state, our nation and the world in which they live," Dovilla said.
“Books and reading are our core business, and so naturally we are thrilled to partner with Representative Dovilla on this program,” said Cuyahoga County Public Library Executive Director Sari Feldman.
One child from each of the four branches will be a Legislator for a Day. Winners will receive a VIP tour of the Ohio Statehouse, which will include participating in a mock legislative hearing and enjoying lunch with Dovilla.
