This Tuesday, March 6th is Read Around the World Day and Family Library Night at Addison from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. We hope your family can join us at Family Library Night!
If your family speaks another language at home, please stop by the library and write the word "READ" in your language on a balloon for the library display.

I read because one life isn't enough, and in the page of a book I can be anybody;
I read because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life;
I read not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I'm just beginning myself, and I wouldn't mind a map;
I read because I have friends who don't, and young though they are, they're beginning to run out of material;
I read because every journey begins at the library, and it's time for me to start packing;
I read because one of these days I'm going to get out of this town, and I'm going to go everywhere and meet everybody, and I want to be ready.”
