Second Baptist will participate in the Summer Reading Program again this year. The little library is placed at Grand Oaks Apartments, across Rt. 10. However, for this to be a success, we need your help in providing the books. It has been proven that young people fall an average of two to three months behind their counterparts when they are not part of a reading program during the summer. So please consider giving a little of your time to help someone else succeed. Remember, none of us made it without someone else’s help. If you can help, see Dea. James Delph, Bro. Howard Corey, Rev. Charles Sumpter or Dea. Odell Williams.
