Come Pick a Place Where Reading Will Take You This Summer at Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library

World Map BB“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”~ Dr. Seuss.

Let your imagination take you where you’d like to go.  Once you pick that destination please share it with us, by marking that spot on our world map located in our children’s area. 

Imagining this destination counts as an activity toward achieving your summer reading goal.
