MILLVILLE, N.J. -

Officials from the Millville Public Library invited Millville's Chief of Police Jody Farabella and Fire Chief Michael Lippincott to read a few books to children who were visiting for the day.

The purpose of this special reading event was to give the kids a chance to interact with the people who keep their community safe.

"Obviously children are our future," said Lippincott.

Lippincott said he understands the importance children have in society and relished the chance to bond with the youngsters at this event.

 "In [our] community children are very special; they're the future leaders of Millville," said Lippincott. "So an opportunity to come here and interact with them, and read a book to them, it's an absolute great thing."

He said he also appreciates the role the employees of the library played in putting this program together.

"It's a great thing what the library is doing," said Lippincott.

Both chiefs explained to the children what their departments do on a daily basis, and even went over a few tips so they could teach others in the community how to stay safe.
