New Books at Adair Public Library: April 12 , 2006 update

D.E.A.R. Day is April 12, 2006; it's a day to honor author Beverly Cleary
By Lee Ann Jessee,
Director, Adair County Public Library

Your Adair County Public Library would like to remind everyone that April 12th is "Drop Everything and Read Day".

This day is to honor Beverly Cleary on her 90th birthday!

Please spend at least 30 minutes reading with your family sometime on this day in honor of Mrs. Cleary's birthday.

If you need something to read , stop by your library and ask for suggestions. Your library has just received some new children's' books which would be great for the occasion.

It would also be a good time to re-visit some of Beverly Cleary's characters such as Ribsy, Henry Huggins, Socks, Ramona Quimby and Beezus.
