Ex-Knicks star Starks is off the court, in the library
These days, instead of passing the ball, former Knicks shooting guard John Starks is passing the book ? to youngsters.
Starks and Congressman Pete King teamed up with Cablevision?s Power to Learn Summer Reading Program to help stir up excitement about summer reading. The two visited the Seaford Public Library today, where local kids read aloud with them.
The Power to Learn program is instituted in more than 4,000 schools, and its summer reading project is designed to push kids to keep learning while school?s out.
