Make YOUR Mark This Dot Day
Introducing Sewickley’s very own Dot Day – a village wide celebration of the creativity in all of us. Dot Day is an international celebration of art, creativity and courage, based on Peter H. Reynolds’ book, The Dot.
We are inviting children of all ages to “make their mark” and explore the power and potential of creativity on September 17th, Dot Day 15143. Dot Day participants can visit participating stores and areas in Sewickley to learn and explore their creativity and earn their Dot Day sticker.
Activities at the Library
Leading up to Dot Day 15143, the library’s Teen Department will host button-making throughout the week (September 12-16) where teens can create wearable dots to show off their creativity. On the big day, we invite families to join us in the main room of the Children’s Department on Saturday, September 17 at 1:30pm for “All Are Welcome Storytime“. We will have a read-aloud of the book, “The Dot,” as well as other books to inspire creativity, and enjoy some songs and rhymes, too.
After the storytime, we will host a drop-in craft project in our Community Room from 2-3pm. The library will also have sidewalk chalk available Saturday from 1:30-3pm for budding creatives to explore their abilities and decorate the sidewalk in front of the library.
There is a lot more Dot Day 15143 fun throughout Sewickley! Find all of the participating locations below.
