GILLETT - Packers fullback John Kuhn stopped by Gillett's public library Monday to help kick off the Leap into Reading program.
It's a program sponsored by the Green and Gold encouraging kids to pick up a book during the summer months. Kuhn spent the morning reading to students and encouraging them to sign up for the program.
"It's really important to keep your reading skills alive during the summer, because kids sometime slip back a grade or two if they don't keep on reading. So, this is a good event -- and it's sponsored by Wisconsin's college savings program," said Jim DiUlio with Leap into Reading.
More than 200 libraries throughout Wisconsin are taking part in the Packers' program.
