HCC Celebrity READ Posters

Some of the world's best-known stars have donated their image to the prestigious posters published by the American Library Association (ALA) to convey the simple but powerful message: READ.

HCC Library began a READ campaign featuring Holyoke Community College faculty and staff in 2007. Since then we have had more than 30 HCC celebrities model for READ posters. The posters hang throughout the library.
