Read Across America event going on now at all County Library branches

Read Across America event going on now at all County Library branches

In celebration of Read Across America visitors to any of the San Bernardino County library branches who check out 30 items with their library card and present those checkout receipts at the service desk will receive a limited edition literary-themed canvas tote bag, a nod to the classic “Little Golden Books.” The program begins today, Thursday, Feb. 29 and runs through Saturday, March 9.

“The goal of this incentive program is to motivate children and teens to incorporate reading into their daily routine,” said County Librarian Melanie Orosco. “Each of these one-of-a-kind bags will have the quote ‘Read, Return, Repeat’ printed on them, which encourages customers to continue to show support to their local libraries.”

In addition to reading incentives, San Bernardino County Library branches will host fun programs for the entire family throughout the month of March including special storytimes, crafts, prizes and more.

Read Across America, spearheaded by the National Education Association (NEA), serves as an annual reading initiative and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on or around March 2, the birthday of the beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss.
