Watch Allen Robinson Participate in 'Live From The Library' Program
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Allen Robinson participated in the Chicago Public Library's new 'Live from the Library' virtual story time program on Wednesday, as the Library's social media channels broadcasted him reading his favorite children's book - I Am Every Good Thing by Derrick D. Barnes.
According to the Library's press release, 'Live From the Library' is program on social media that features a combination of librarians, authors,
celebrities, and Chicago notables recording themselves reading children’s stories. They are collecting the
videos and releasing one per day on Facebook Live.
The 'Live from the Library' series allows the Chicago Public Library to continue its mission of encouraging kids to pick up books but doing so in a socially-distant, virtual way. The program was launched in April in direct response to the COVID-19 epidemic that
closed all libraries for the first time in over 150 years.
These videos have included dozens of regional and national celebrities. Allen Robinson is joining the likes of Matthew Broderick, Chelsea Clinton, Jane Lynch, John C. Reilly, Henry Winkler, John Lithgow, Kristen Bell, Gabrielle Union, Isaiah Thomas, Eddie Vedder and Barack and Michelle Obama to record videos for the virtual program.
Allen's participation in 'Live from the Library' is a continuation of his foundation's own mission of encouraging literacy among inner-city Chicago youth. You can watch a recording of Allen's broadcast below.
