Get Smarter! Visit Dorchester's Main Street Library Saturdays & Wednesdays
We all know that kids who read books tend not only to do better in school, but also better in life in general.
Did you know the same is true for adults who read books?
So if reading a book or two now and again is so beneficial, why not make a visit to Dorchester's main street library? It is there for you to use.
The Dorchester Public Library, located between First State Bank and the community hall, is open Wednesdays from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
We challenge all Dorchester parents and children to read one book a month. We are guessing you will see the benefits almost immediately in your mental ability.
Here's another reason why children should be encouraged to read more: Despite Nebraska taxpayers spending more than $3 billion on K-12 education in 2016, nearly 30% of all Nebraska 11th graders failed to read at levels on statewide standardized tests.
