"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss
At Lowe Orthodontics, we are passionate about many things, ranging from our faith to our love of family and friends to our devotion to our patients. We also strive to stay very involved in our community, trying to make a positive difference wherever we can. One of the areas that we are most passionate about is education - especially supporting those programs that stress the importance of reading in the lives of the children in our community.
Reading is vitally important in the lives of children (and adults as well!) as its helps to expand the mind and develop the imagination - allowing kids to go places they otherwise could not go and see things they otherwise would never see! A strong reader not only has the unique ability to educate themselves but they also can take much greater advantage of their formal education as well. Perhaps just as important is the fact that reading is fun and can bring immense joy into our lives!
Dr. Lowe and his wife, Suzie, are avid supporters of the Alamance Public Library, Reach Out and Read, StudentU, the Augustine Literacy Project and the Holy Comforter Newlin Elementary Backpack Program. In addition, Suzie is a trained reading, writing and spelling tutor through the Augustine Literacy Project.
Here at Lowe Orthodontics we recently made the bold move to convert our game room corner into a reading area that houses a collection of our favorite books and many classics as well. That's right, we have traded in our playstation and TV for the likes of Dickens, Tolkien and Angelou. It's not that we are against video games - we know that kids can and will play them on their own phones or their parents' phones - and that is certainly ok. We simply want to do everything we can to foster reading in the lives of our patients. At the Lowe "library", you don't need a library card and there are no late fees. In fact, you don't even have to return our books- as long as you promise to read them and then pass them on to someone else! Oh, and you don't have to write a book report either - just remember to tell us your favorite part!!
