In partnership with Barnes & Noble, the Mount Pleasant Police Department launched the Reading Patrol Program today at the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre. Police Chief Carl Ritchie welcomed the young readers to the program.

More than 35 children attended the new program and were treated to readings of “Clark the Shark” and “Llama Llama” as well as special crafts.

“We would like to thank Barnes & Noble for their community spirit and for allowing us to host our program in their bookstore,” said Sgt. Les Mauldin.

“The Reading Patrol Program is simple: build a connection early on with the youth of our community, and they will remember it when facing difficult decisions. We want to build bridges one book at a time and we plan to read to children in a fun and congenial atmosphere that will lend itself to making lifetime connections.”

The program is free and meets at Barnes & Noble every third Saturday of the month.

For more information about the Reading Patrol Program, contact Sgt. Mauldin by email at lmauldin@tompsc.com or call 843-881-8242.
