The Lebanon Elks Lodge 631 and the Lebanon Community Library will host the 2nd Annual Elks Reading Program in Honor of Lt. William Lebo on Saturday, March 16, at 10 a.m.

This special event will feature officers from the Lebanon Police Department as guest readers, a craft, free books, and school supplies for all children who attend courtesy of the Lebanon Elks Club.

No registration is required, and this free event will take place at the Lebanon Community Library, 125 North 7th St., Lebanon, PA 17046.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this event again this year, honoring Lt. Lebo and his service to our community. Lt. Lebo was a guest storyteller during the library’s Summer Learning Programs, so it’s nice to continue sharing his love of reading and the community,” said Michelle Hawk, Executive Director of the library.

William Lebo’s favorite community activities,” said Matt Dubbs, Secretary of Lebanon Elks Lodge 631.
