Liberty Bank President and CEO Chandler Howard reads to children participating in the new Reach Out and Read program at Pediatric Care Center in Bristol.  Operating through pediatric practices, Reach Out and Read provides age-appropriate books and support for early literacy development to children aged 6 months to 5 years at their well-child visits.  The Liberty Bank Foundation recently provided a $10,000 grant that supported the program's expansion in Bristol and Mansfield/Willimantic.  Learn more..
