National Reading Month

March is National Reading Month, but I only realized it because ModLife, another blog I follow, happened to mention it. How sad is that?

Actually, the branch I work at seems to be celebrating everything but National Reading Month: we have displays and programs for Women's History Month and National Craft Month. There are posters and shelf displays of Irish authors for Saint Patrick's Day and books getting ready for spring. We have the bloodmobile parked out front regularly to celebrate that it's American Red Cross month.

All of this is in addition to all the other non-national-whatever-month stuff we have going on like the home selling workshop, junior science club, toddler university, teen anime club, computer lab tutorial, and family movie nights. I guess we are just assuming everyone is reading too.


  1. Wow! Does the staff do anything aside from programs? We are lucky if the schedule has the name of the month spelled correctly.

  2. I suppose if we're not programming the public will suddenly decide we're useless and demand their tax payer dollars back.
