Amazon Wish List for Portsmouth Middle School Pop-Up Library :

Read Across America Day, also known as Dr Seuss Day, is a yearly observance in the USA inaugurated by the NEA (National Education Association). It is held on the school day that is nearest to 2 March, Dr Seuss birthday. Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American artist, book publisher, animator, poet, a political cartoonist as well as an author. He is best known for authoring over 60 children’s books.

NEA launched the Read Across America, which is an initiative on reading that began in 1997, to encourage children in reading more books and also getting them excited about reading. On 2 March 1998, the first Read Across America Day was celebrated; since then, it has been held annually. The holiday mainly focuses on motivating children to read as it improves their performance in school.

In appreciation of this holiday, Olde Port Properties is running a fundraiser to get folks to donate their used books in very good condition. “High quality books for high quality kids”. Drop off your donations at Olde Port Properties from March 1st-March 31st. Graphic novels for ages 0-18 are encouraged. If you do not have gently used books lying around at home, you may purchase from the Portsmouth Middle Schools Pop-Up Library Amazon Wish List. If purchased on Amazon, please send to 26 Congress Street with your information to enter the raffle.
