Read Across America Week
We are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday all week long! Check out our spirit days - each one connected to a book. Elementary classrooms will be decorating their doors in the theme of a Dr. Seuss book. We will also have book guessing in the library - can you guess how many fiction, nonfiction, and picture books we have? The winner of each will receive a $10 gift card to our spring book fair. The week will wrap up with a readathon on Friday!
