Read across America and Dr. Seuss's birthday are going to be celebrated at the Raleigh Public Library in a fun way with a circus party on Friday, March 1st at 3:30 pm. The circus is being based off a Dr. Seuss book called If I Ran the Circus.
We will start by reading the book. We will also have a mini magic show as well as plenty of circus carnival types of games and circus snacks. This will be a fun way to be reminded of how important reading is.
In order to accomplish fun things like this at the library we need our volunteers. There is no way we can accomplish this without them. Volunteers are such an important part of every library system. Whether it's for special parties like this or helping to shelve books, volunteers are necessary. If you have never thought about helping at your public library, check into it. I am sure they would appreciate your help. I know we do.
