May is…Get Caught Reading Month!


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Get Caught Reading is a campaign that was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers.  The goal is to promote the enjoyment of reading, and to remind us of the pleasures of getting lost in a good book!

Looking for a read-alike to get lost in?  Try Novelist, (Novelist K-8 for children) or What do I read next?  

The Ottawa Public Library supports intellectual curiosity, and intellectual freedom, as the foundation of an informed democratic society.   Let’s celebrate the free flow of ideas, knowledge and opinions this May, and get lost in a good book.
