Read Across America Day!

Today — Tuesday, March 2 — is the annual Read Across America Day! This year’s program focuses on celebrating a nation of diverse readers and diverse books. Are you ready to read?

We have lots of new children’s titles, old favorites, and interesting books just waiting to be chosen. You can pick up materials inside the library, at the window, or on the curbside table.

Come in and find some new selections, or call us at 330.653.6658, and we will help you choose.

You can find more information about Read Across America at NEA’s Read Across America site.

Happy reading!

NASA Essay Contest for Grades 4-12

NASA Glenn Research Center is celebrating 80 years! Located in Cleveland, the Glenn Research Center “designs and develops innovative technology to advance NASA’s missions in aeronautics and space exploration. It has world-class facilities including wind tunnels, drop towers, vacuum chambers, and a research aircraft hangar.”

To honor the Center’s 80 years, students in grades 4 – 12 are invited to join the celebration by learning about NASA Glenn’s missions and people, and then writing an essay explaining how they are inspired or how new space discoveries may change our lives in the future.

See the NASA Glenn site here for important dates and details!
