HOUSTON, TX (RPRN) 06/18/12 — Tomorrow, June 19, 2012, Houston Texan Wade Smith and The Wade Smith Foundation will launch their first “Reading With the Pros” event at Johnson Neighborhood Library. Smith will be joined by his teammates and other professional athletes including Antoine Caldwell and Earl Mitchell (Houston Texans), Herb Taylor (Green Bay Packers), Marcus Sloan (European basketball player) and more for an hour of reading with Houston children in an effort to promote summer reading and education. Staff will also be on hand to complete library card registrations.

This free one-hour event will begin at 4:00 p.m. at the Johnson Neighborhood Library located at 3517 Reed Rd, Houston, Texas 77051. Children and parents are encouraged to arrive before 3:30 to be seated, as space will be limited. Players will be available to sign autographs and take pictures immediately after the event.

“One of our biggest initiatives is promoting literacy and providing educational resources for children and parents. Each month, we will host similar reading events at Dallas and Houston public libraries to get families interested in visiting their local branches together,” states Summer Galvez, Vice President of The Wade Smith Foundation.
