Kids, teens celebrating Dot Day

The children’s book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, tells the story of a young student’s blossoming creativity: her grumpy dot on a page turns into something wonderful. The book’s message has spread, and every year on “September 15-ish,” the world celebrates International Dot Day.

Reynolds writes, “Imagine the power and potential of millions of people around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites.”

The Fond du Lac Public Library invites creative people to come to the Children’s Room Thursday, September 14, through Saturday, September 16, to create a picture that – just like in the book – starts with one simple dot.

Teens in grades 6-12 are invited to create a collaborative Dot Day-inspired art panel at 1 p.m. Saturday, September 23. The finished panel will be hung in the library’s Teen area.

Both programs are free; no registration required. For more information call the library’s Children’s Desk at (920) 322-3940.
