"Won't You Wear Your Sweater?" Day

Come to the library on Thursday, March 20 dressed in your favorite sweater to honor Mister Rogers and receive a sticker or bookmark. March 20th is the 80th anniversary of the birth of this popular and gentle educator. You can read all about his accomplishments and contributions to children's welfare in the Wikipedia entry at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Rogers . You might want to check out The World According to Mr. Rogers or listen to Songs From the Neighborhood: the Music of Mr. Rogers. We also have several of his books pertaining to children's issues like Going to the Doctor, Making Friends, and The New Baby for borrowing. So, wear your favorite sweater on Thursday to honor Mister Rogers and always heed his advice, "Let's make the most of this beautiful day."
