February 24, 2012

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature The Big Read 2012.

David Plunkett joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the annual event that takes place throughout March 2012.

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts designed to revitalize the role of literary reading in American popular culture. The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library has a goal of encouraging all residents of central Virginia to read and discuss Bless Me, Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya.
