National Read Across America Day was Wednesday, March 2nd. This annual children’s literacy event is also Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We are celebrating these two events all month at Tekamah Public Library, along with some other fun! Keep reading to learn about the events and displays we have going on this month.
Paper Chain Project
For every book checked out during the month of March, a link will be added to a paper chain. Patrons are invited to decorate and attach links to the chain, which will be displayed at the front desk. We can also add links for you if you’re in a hurry. Help grow our chain by checking out books this month!
Favorite Picture Book Display
We are also displaying our favorite picture books. Each week, a different librarian will display their favorite picture books. Remember, there is no age limit on picture books. Even adults can check them out to enjoy. We won’t judge you!

Dr. Seuss Story Times
Several of our weekly story times this month will have a Dr. Seuss theme. If you missed the story time, don’t worry! Stop in any time to see if we have crafts left… We usually do! They make fun, easy after school or weekend projects. Check out the darling Cat in the Hat one of our story time kids made!
