Today the American Library Association announces its Youth Book & Media Awards, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. Many of us know and love Dr. Seuss, an author who created engaging stories for beginning readers, and this award celebrates books that continue that tradition today. If you need a fun suggestion for a beginning reader, this list has some great ideas.

2017 Caldecott Award Winner

DIA Away

DIA Away: Think Like an Artist is a free, mobile interactive classroom and a creative exploration space for people of all ages. It brings educational, hands-on art experiences across the tri-county area and will be visiting us here at Canton Public Library.

Inside, participants will discover some of the ways artists think and then have the opportunity to try out creative thinking skills at digital and hands-on stations. Visitors will be surprised and inspired to discover the connections between themselves and the ways artists think and work.
