Local Teacher Shares Gift of Reading With Newborns at Lucas County Health Cente

After 33 years of teaching elementary school age children, LuAnn Mosbach retired. However, that hasn’t stopped her from sharing her love of reading with future generations. Recently, she found a way she could share the importance of reading with local parents and their children.

“As a parent, I began reading with my children from the time they were born,” said LuAnn Mosbach. “I’ve always believed that if a parent can talk to their baby, they can read to their baby.”

Since December, LuAnn has been working with Rene Fetters, OB Nurse Manager at LCHC, to determine how many babies will be born and how many books will be needed.

“As a teacher, I understand the importance of having good reading skills,” said Mosbach. “It’s hard to see a child struggle with reading. Helping parents get started on that important skill is just one way I feel I can give back to the community.”

Thanks to LuAnn, every baby born at Lucas County Health Center will now receive two books, giving them and their parents them just one more opportunity to bond.
