Get Caught Reading Month

Get CaughtMay is “Get Caught Reading Month,” a nationwide campaign supported by the Association of American Publishers to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read. Remember, home and school aren’t the only places you can read.  You could get caught reading on your lunch break, in the waiting room at the doctor’s or dentist’s office, on a Metro bus, on an airplane or just about any place.  No matter where you read, what your read, or whether you prefer paper, electronic, or audio books, your library has you covered!
