As holidays go, Read a Book Day can be celebrated with minimal effort. Step one: Find a book. Step two: Read. Step three: Enjoy. For anyone interested in less solitary festivities, here are a few ideas:
- Find a Free Little Library in your neighborhood. Maybe you have books to donate, or perhaps you’ll find one for yourself. If there is no Free Little Library in your area, it’s easy to start
- September is Library Card Sign-up Month. If you don’t have a library card, this is a great day to get one. Many libraries also accept donated books.
- Join (or begin) a book club. Start one with your friends, or engage with your fellow readers online.
- Walk to your shelf. Find a book you love. Give it to someone who will love it.
Of course, we always recommend that students and parents looking for books targeted to both reading ability and interests access the free Lexile “Find a Book” search tool.
