DULUTH, MN -- It was story time for Stowe Elementary students Tuesday.
Some pretty familiar faces took time to read to the kids as part of the 5th annual book fair. It was held at the Gary new Duluth recreation center.
Some of the readers included police chief Mike Tusken, several Duluth police officers, and Duluth's assistant superintendent Jeff Horton.
The kids also got a chance to check out the squad cars.
Horton says it's a great way to engage with the students on a different level and get to know them better.
"I'm super happy our police officers could be here today, we've been working a lot on community policing in our community. They just do a great job coming out in the community working with kids, and just developing a great connection which is super exciting for me.. I'm most excited just to be here, and to spend time with kids, read to them and really learn from them.", Stated Horton.
The students all left the book fair with a few new books made possible through Barnes and Noble.
