Monday, March 2, 2020 is Read Across America. The day which encourages children and teens (and people of all ages) to pick up a book, put down the cell phone, and read.

While the 'day' was the launched by the National Education Association in 1998, let it be a reminder to you of the great resource that is your local library. Each library has a diverse selection of books and people who work (and volunteer) there. Plus, there are many programs that you might night be aware of. Some of those programs include (depending on the branch) help with resume writing, learning how to use a computer or even ways to promote your small business.

If you live in the Mid Hudson Valley, you can find your local library branch by clicking here. Do you have a library card, but thought that it was only good for borrowing books? Well, just so you know that is the tip of the iceberg for what that card can really do, click here for more programs that include access to museums, attractions and park.

What was the last book that you read?
