Read Across America at the Library

The nationwide reading celebration "Read Across America" will begin at 3:15 p.m., Wed., March 16, at the Cloquet Public Library. Children of all ages can join the fun by reading from a favorite book or from one of ours. Everyone who reads aloud will receive a free book.

The National Education Association's "Read Across America" event is now in its 14th year, motivating children to read and helping them to master basic skills. Join the thousands of schools, libraries and community centers across the country participating in the worthwhile event, bringing together kids and books and you.

The event is in honor of the hugely popular children's author Dr. Seuss whose birthday is in March. Like all of our programs at the library, "Read Across America" is free of charge and open to the public.
