March 2 is National Read Across America Day, a day to celebrate our favorite activity – reading! The day was established by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1998 to help get kids excited about reading. National Read Across America Day occurs each year on the birthday of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss.
To celebrate Read Across America Day, the spirit of Dr. Seuss, and the re-opening of our library for in person services, we are inviting the community to join us in completing a series of month long reading challenges in March. Participants can pick up a challenge sheet at the library (in person or via curbside service) or download one here.
For every five activities completed, get two chances to win weekly prizes. Complete all of the activities to earn a chance to win the grand prize. Additionally, the first 50 people to complete all activities will also receive a $5 gift card!
For extra fun, post a photo of you doing one of the challenges on Facebook or Instagram with #fsplreads2021 and we may share it on our social media. Check our social media for FSPL staff completing challenges along with you!
As you complete challenges, bring your form to the main circulation desk to have completed squares stamped and receive your raffle tickets for the prize drawings. Completed forms must be turned in by March 31 for a chance to win the grand prize.
Open to all readers, birth to 102!
