    The timing is just right for this special story time! With story times cancelled the day before, the Golden Key Club would like to read to your children Friday morning! "Each October, Jumpstart's "Read for the Record" campaign is held worldwide to promote the importance of literacy and learning in children of all different backgrounds. Golden Key International Honor Society at the University of Maine is founded on three pillars: academics, leadership and service. Each year, we work to promote these ideals, and Jumpstart's Read for the Record allows us to to share our love for learning with members of our community. This year's Read for the Record book is Quackers by Liz Wong. This is a very fun book and we cannot wait to share this opportunity with the Orono Public Library!" - Golden Key Honor Society member
