The Rowe Branch Library will be celebrating NEA's Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss's birthday and the joys of reading, on Monday, March 2, 2020 at 6 PM. The library, located at 108 E. Marshall Blvd., will celebrating with a Dr. Seuss Story Time featuring a guest reader from the Mayor’s office.
National Education Association (NEA) launched the first NEA's Read Across America Day in 1998 as a way to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Seuss, by encouraging children to read and encouraging adults to spend time reading with their children. More than 45 million readers across the country, both young and old will be celebrating the annual Read Across America Day this year.
A child's ability to read has a direct effect on their future success. Reading with your child helps to increase their vocabulary and improves their reading fluency and comprehension.
