Books have the power to challenge the minds of every individual, whether young or old. Who wasn’t inspired when Dr. Seuss told them “Kid, you’ll move mountains!” And didn’t Sam I Am get us to try new things before making blind assumptions?
The impetus behind a great read to see more, reach higher and push the boundaries of imagination is compounded and multiplied in every local library. Now, with the Grand Opening of the Slover Library, the city of Norfolk is welcome to unleash the potential hidden among the pages.
We partnered with the library to create this video invitation for you and your family to come out and visit this weekend for all the fun festivities.
The new library will open at 10 a.m. on January 9 with the First Book Checkout ceremony performed by Mayor Paul D. Fraim. Celebrations will continue all weekend through January 11 with Dr. Seuss-inspired activities, games, and entertainment. Rumor has it the Cat in the Hat will even be in attendance.
See you there! And remember, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
