Preschoolers from the Dunham Children’s Learning Center visited Penn College’s Madigan Library on Tuesday morning for story time. Tommie L. Smith, library operations/public services assistant, and April N. Line, library support services assistant, each read an autumn-themed book to the boys and girls gathered on the first floor. The visit is among the activities scheduled during National Campus Children’s Centers Week (Oct. 8-12).
