TROY — State Rep. Padma Kuppa (D-Troy) will be visiting schools throughout the 41st House District this month to read to students in celebration of “March is Reading Month”.

“When I was young, my dad would take me to buy a book every month; that’s how I first fell in love with reading,” Kuppa said. “I would get lost in the bookshelves and pretend I was worlds away, where only my imagination could take me. Encouraging a love of reading in our children is one of the most important gifts we can give them, and I am so excited to be able to share that joy with students throughout our community.”
