On March 1, 2019, the teachers and education support professionals of West Fargo Education Association want to get the word out about the importance of children's literacy. The National Education Association's Read Across America is a year-round literacy project that encourages readers, both young and old, to celebrate reading.

Right here in West Fargo, we're getting into the reading excitement, too. There are events in Fargo and West Fargo to celebrate Read Across America Day.

Join us at the West Fargo Library, 109 3rd St. E., for a fun-filled Birthday Celebration for Dr. Seuss from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. March 2.

The Fargo Public Library, 102 3rd St. N., is also hosting an event from 11 to noon.

On NEA's Read Across America Day, join in on the fun because you're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child!
