Head Start artist combined their love of books and art in their annual art show at Greenwich Library.

"Tonight we have an art show here [in the children's room at the library] Our preschoolers have all done fabulous works of art that are on the wall and it's really an opportunity for the parents and families to come in and once again see the library and see everything it has to offier," said Nicole Hadley, co-chair of the Friends of Greenwich Library Outreach Program.

In conjunction with the Friends of Greenwich Library, students are able to visit the library and fall in love with reading.

Monique Christensen, co-chair of the Friends of Greenwich Library Outreach Program said "The children get to come here and experience a library program, which they don't have at their school. They come in, we have story time, we do songs and then we come in here [the children's room] and take out books and we read to them,"

The event gives Head Start students the opportunity to showcase their work and spend more time in the library.

"We give them their first library card with their parents so they are super excited to get their cards, and come here more often," said Hadley.

When asked about their favorite part about reading, Cassidy, a Head Start student said, "I like to share with my friends."

"My favorite part is getting to read the books," said Jacari, a Head Start student.

Eric, a Head Start student said, "I love to read them."
