Bucky READ Poster Now Available

BuckyREAD.jpg As previously posted, Bucky Badger is the latest READ poster celebrity. The poster, cosponsored by the UW-Madison Libraries and the Wisconsin Center for the Book, features Bucky standing against a bookcase reading about great moments in the history of Camp Randall Stadium, the home of the Wisconsin Badgers football team.

According to a UW-Madison Libraries press release, the libraries are teaming up with the UW-Madison Athletic Department to use the poster to encourage reading in Madison schools. Bucky READ posters and bookmarks will be provided to students through Bookin' It With Bucky, a program in which Bucky and members of the university's athletic teams visit classrooms and read to fourth-grade students.
