Today, many schools and libraries celebrate a wonderful national holiday know as Read Across America Day. Read Across America Day was started by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1998 to recognize the joy of reading. This special reading holiday is observed every year on March 2nd, as it celebrates the birthday of renowned and loved author, Dr. Seuss. There are many ways schools and libraries celebrate the holiday, including hosting book reading competitions and book fairs for students to discover new stories and authors.
At WITS, we recognize the impact that reading can have in one’s life and it is our mission set students on a trajectory for success. Through mentor powered programs, we create opportunities for students to self-identify as readers at a young age.
