Council Member Turner enjoys reading to young people. “Reading is a key to success. I believe it is so important for a child to cultivate the love of reading early in life. The Read 4 Success program excites our children about reading and helps to build their personal library with new books. I look forward to reading to schools across District 4 and Prince George’s County.”

During her upcoming visit, Council Member Turner will read from the book, Who is Louis Armstrong? by Yona Zeldis McDonough to two fifth grade classes. She will also provide each student with a copy of the book to encourage the children to grow their personal library.
