Earth Day features 'read-ins' for local schoolchildren

In celebration of Earth Day 1998, the Bates Environmental Federation sponsors two “read-ins” for local schoolchildren at the Lewiston and Auburn public libraries April 22 at 2 p.m.

Several Bates students, faculty and staff will read from age-appropriate books that celebrate the environment and raise environmental awareness. Bates will donate several children’s books with environmental themes to each public library at the “read-ins,” including The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, One Less Fish by Kim Toft, Meeting Trees by Scott Russell Sanders, There’s Still Time by Mark Galan, North American Endangered Species by Colleayn Mastin, A Log’s Life by Wendy Pfeffer, Can We Save Them? by David Dobson and Will We Miss Them? by Alexandra Wright.
