Whittlesey & Hadley in Hartford recent-
ly presented Barnes & Noble NOOK
tablets to students at the Dr. Ramon E.
Betances Early Reading Lab in Hart-
ford. The firm purchased 27 NOOK
tablets, pre-loaded with popular chil-
dren's fiction and non-fiction books
(including titles about Rosa Parks and
Abraham Lincoln), for the school's 54
third graders to share.
The NOOKs will be used to enhance
curriculum and further the mission
of the Third Grade Promise that all
students who enter a Hartford Public
School at grade Pre-Kindergarten
or Kindergarten will read at or above
grade level by the end of third grade.
"We believe that reading is fundamental
to learning and succeeding in school
and in the workplace," said Whittle-
sey & Hadley Managing Partner Drew
Andrews. "Our firm wants to make an
investment in technology for Hartford
school children that will leave a legacy
of learning."
