The Iola Village Library will celebrate the magical world of Dr. Seuss at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 1, at.
Every year, on or near March 2, Dr. Seuss’s birthday, the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America is held. This is a year-round literacy project that encourages readers, both young and old, to celebrate reading.
At the Iola Village Library, everyone, young and old, is invited to a Dr. Seuss program featuring stories and a Seuss-inspired craft.
Since its inception 15 years ago, the NEA’s Read Across America program, designed to get kids excited about reading, has acted as a vehicle to talk about a serious issue in a fun way: children’s literacy.
The Iola Village Library staff reminds parents of the crucial role they play in their children’s education. Taking time to read with a child is one of the most important lessons that parents can share with their children. Children who read frequently are better readers and better students.
