It’s Read Across America Day!

Ashley Hansen March 2, 2021

Ready, Set, Read! Today, March 2nd, 2021 is Read Across America Day! Started in 1998 by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is the largest day in the country to celebrate reading. Reading is so important for our mental stimulation, stress reduction, memory, writing skills and so much more. Try to make a new goal to read at least 20 minutes every day and expand your knowledge.
