Thursday evening, March 10, marked over a decade of reading fun with approximately 1,100 'kids' of all ages, children through adults, who joined in the 11th Annual Read Adair County that was held at Adair County Elementary School as part of the national Read Across America event to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss.


This year's community, family read-in for children and their parents, guardians and grandparents celebrated in style with lots of reading rooms with storybook characters reading books and strolling around the school, kids playing bingo for books, having their faces painted and eating pizza. Each child received a goody bag from the Cat in the Hat that included a book and other cool stuff; all in all a fun celebration. This was all followed by the Parade of Storybook characters led by none other than the Cat in the Hat and culminated with the top Accelerated Readers in each school being awarded a medal for outstanding reading.

We wish to thank all who attended this year's event and a special thanks to the following for their help: Adair County High School Library for Book Talk; Adair County High School Upward Bound for serving pizza and drinks; Adair County Middle School Beta Club theme based storybook readers; Adair County Middle School Readers in Pink reading room; Adair County Public Library for Dr. Seuss Jeopardy; Adult Learning Center reading room; The Arts at ACHS for painting faces; Family Resource Centers and school librarians for BINGO for Books; 4H Leadership students for theme based storybook readers; KRA high school students for theme based storybook readers; Lindsey Wilson College Bonner Leaders reading room; Lindsey Wilson College Division of Education for reading rooms and strolling storybook characters.

And, we also wish to thank the following for their donations and contributions: IGA, Pizza Hut, McDonald's, Wendy's, Graphic Concepts, and our local media outlets, Camp Casey, Title I. And, of course, the entire faculty and staff of Adair County Elementary School for accommodating our needs.

This family reading celebration is so much fun and continues to grow and change each year. We can always count on our community to pitch in and be there helping us. We are so thankful to be part of a school community and a community at large, where so many wonderful things are happening. We just appreciate the opportunity to serve our children and their families.

Read Adair County is sponsored by: Adair County School Libraries; Adair County Public Library; Family Resource/Youth Services Centers; Title I Reading Program; 4-H Council; 21st Century Camp Casey and A.C.T.I.O.N. Generation.
