Today is APRIL 12 and there is a lot going on at the library! Not only is it Beverly Cleary’s birthday, but it is also D.E.A.R. day! D.E.A.R. stands for Drop Everything And Read and it is a lot of fun! Telling kids to read is great,┬ábut it is also important to show kids that you value reading, this helps your child develop print motivation or an interest in reading and an enjoyment of books. We are all busy so when we drop everything and read it sends a message that reading is valuable…so much so that we will drop everything to do it! Read today and make reading a part of your routine everyday!

Come to the library for great books to read aloud and FREE D.E.A.R. stickers! Wear your sticker with pride to show how much reading means to you!
