It was a big day for literacy in Rapid City on Tuesday, Sept. 27. Children had the opportunity to hear First Lady Linda Daugaard read stories, and third graders got to meet children's author Jennifer Richard Jacobson.

Both women say engaging children early in reading and writing leads to an understanding of the power of communication.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks went to the Dahl Arts Center to talks with Daugaard. She then crossed the street to the Rapid City Public Library to find Jacobson, who gave an evening talk there to the general public.
