Get Caught Reading in May

by Jessica Reppert

It’s the last week of classes, finals are just around the corner, and spring is in the air. May is Get Caught Reading Month and Rohrbach Library is the perfect place to take your study breaks and ease your mind into a good book.

Get Caught Reading is “a nationwide campaign to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read,” (GetCaughtReading.org). The Association of American Publishers has supported GCR since its launch in 1999, and thousands of celebrities, booksellers, teachers, and librarians have joined the campaign, and continue to do so, across the country.

The newest GCR initiative is a set of streaming videos designed to “inspire your students and children to utilize the materials and opportunities their local and school libraries have to offer,” called Libraries Matter (GetCaughtReading.org). There are already some of these videos available on GetCaughtReading.org on their Libraries Matter tab.

Celebrities in support of Get Caught Reading include:

  • Bill Pullman
  • Rob Lowe
  • Jessica Harper
  • Johnny Damon
  • Queen Latifah
  • Shawn Johnson
  • Emma Roberts
  • Drew carey
  • The Miami Heat
  • Sandra Boynton
  • George Foreman
  • Jeff Gordon
  • Alicia Keys
  • Rosie O’Donnell
  • Diane Sawyer

Some television networks & movie studios are even using their popular shows and characters to support Get Caught Reading:

  • Dora the Explorer
  • Clifford the Big Red Dog
  • Ice Age
  • Sid the Science Kid
  • Dinosaur Train
  • Donald Duck
  • Maya and Miguel
  • Naruto
  • Olivia the Pig
  • Rugrats
  • VeggieTales
  • Yoda

Get Caught Reading promotes a literacy program with fact sheets showing the importance of reading at various stages of life, as well as “First Book: Providing New Books to Children in Need.”

    Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
    know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Everything composed made a great deal of sense. However,
    what about this? what if you were to create a awesome
    headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention?

    I mean Get Caught Reading in May | The More You Know… is a little boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written.

    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

    The warranties for some branded cars may go up to 3 or 4
    years depending on the model. Be smart and savvy when negotiating the interest
    rate for new cars and don’t just sign on the bottom line.
    The damage varies from vehicle to vehicle but can be as small as light hail damage which is
    barely visible through to damage caused by falling
    trees.

    Abroad, modified cars long, first appeared in the modified car to
    better participate in the competition, drag racing, like
    so many people have converted their car engines,.
    Producing a very light car will drop its
    fuel consumption, and oil companies will not appreciate this.
    It is available in two versions of petrol and diesel and has been a very reasonable price.
