AN UPDATE FROM OUR DIRECTOR:
As families approach one year of navigating the pandemic, we continue to reimagine "what we've always done." Read Across America Day and St. Patrick's Day are two EPIC events that were always a wonderful reason to gather, celebrate and share- so this year, through the power of social media, we are connecting our community and celebrating in a new way.
Read Across America Day is TOMORROW- Tuesday, March 2! Follow along with us all day as we share Dr. Seuss stories and complementing STEAM projects, and travel "across America" with guest readers! We're starting at 6am in Alaska with "I Am Not Going To Get Up Today", visiting the Broadway Market to cook green eggs and ham, and traveling to a different state every hour for reading, related STEM activities, Seuss-themed yoga classes and more. You can also grab your "Read Across America" box, full of everything you need for an "EPIC" day of literacy and fun!
Our St. Patrick's series also kicks off today with Councilmember Chris Scanlon reading "Silly McGilly"! You can watch that video here, and follow Silly all the way until St. Patrick's Day as he pops up at different Buffalo spots and celebrates local businesses.
See you tomorrow, bright and early!
Tara N. Burgess, Executive Director
and the entire EPIC team
