FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Razorback athletes hit the books with young Hog fans.

The event called "Read with the Razorbacks" welcomed families to the Fayetteville Public Library on Saturday to hang out with Hog players. The Razorbacks read with the kids, signed autographs and even handed out free books!

"The athletes are really encouraged to promote literacy and this is just one of their many attempts to get out in the community and be a good example to children," said Lolly Greenwood, Director of Youth and Outreach Services at the Fayetteville Public Library.

Kids showed up in their Razorback best, sporting Hog attire, and the best part is the entire event was free!
