The Ruth Enlow Library invites the community to celebrate Read Across America and the birthday of Dr. Seuss in March. Read Across America, an initiative of the National Education Association (NEA), is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on, or near, March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss, and throughout the month of March.
