The Clayton State University Library will be hosting more than 500 people for the Fifth Annual Metro Atlanta Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Competition on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Helen Ruffin was a library media specialist who wanted to excite kids about reading. In response to her posting on the selection committee for DeKalb County Georgia’s Children Book Award Nominee program, she decided to engage students throughout the county in a regional reading bowl.
To help with the Reading Bowl, Clayton State Dean of Libraries Dr. Gordon Baker has called for 60 volunteers from the Clayton State campus to serve as readers, score keepers, and other general volunteers. There will be training sessions for volunteers on Friday, Feb. 1, at 4 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 2, at 7:30 a.m.
