Did you know that there are many different meanings to each month here in the United States? You’ve probably heard of National Women’s History Month and National Poetry Month, but have you heard of National Egg Month?
The month of May is celebrated in many different ways by many different people. It’s simultaneously National Egg Month, National Photography Month, National Water Safety Month, and even National Skin Cancer Awareness Month. The one we at the Rogers Public Library love to celebrate is National Get Caught Reading Month. So, choose your favorite book series or use our resources to find something new, and make sure that you get caught reading by your friends, family, and maybe even strangers here at the library!
This is also a great month to start thinking about reading a good book because sign-ups are now open for our Summer Reading Program. Join the Rogers Public Library and other patrons in celebrating the Oceans of Possibilities! You can click here to register for the event or go to our Rogers Public Library website and click on the Reading Challenge image on the front page. We have different programs for children, teens, and adults. So, there’s something for everyone! We will have periodic prize drawings that you can get your name entered into by participating in the challenges on the program website, as well. All you have to do is read! You will be able to start logging your reading progress on June 1st.
