Flipping out for books
Brandon Kirby, 6, looks at the large graphics from the picture story Brittanie Cope, with Victoria Adult Literacy Council, reads to a group of 6- and 7-year-olds at the Victoria Boys and Girls Club on Tuesday. The group sponsors the FLIP Summer Reading Tour to encourage young children to read and build home libraries. The reading tour continues 10 a.m. Tuesdays at the Boys and Girls Club and 9 a.m. Wednesdays through Aug 13. Book donations for all ages are always welcome, and volunteers who are interested in reading to the kids can contact program coordinator Eden Casal at 361-582-4273 for more information.
