Celebrate March Reading Month in the Brighton Howell Area

March 2, 2023

“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Suess

The beloved Dr. Suess was born on March 2, that’s why March was designated as National Reading Month. Reading is enjoyable at any age and has a number of benefits including memory improvement, vocabulary expansion, and stress reduction. On your next Brighton Howell Area getaway, stop into one of these local bookstores and libraries to challenge yourself to finish a book during National Reading Month.

A staple in Downtown Brighton, 2 Dandelions is the best spot to stop when looking for your next good read. Started by two longtime friends who shared a dream, this cozy bookshop wishes to spread happiness and joy through books. Choose from a wide range of books in all sorts of categories. Be on the lookout for staff-picked books that will have a tag describing why it’s a must-read! Can’t find something that interests you? Ask a member of the staff to help.


Cromaine Library

Since 1927, Cromaine Library in Hartland has been a staple of the community. The historic building houses thousands of books just waiting to take you on an adventure.
