In honor of International Dot Day, the North Branford libraries, Totoket Valley Elementary School and North Branford Patch want to see you share your creativity.

in North Branford (have you found any yet? If so, enter your dot findings) with International Dot Day on Saturday, Sept. 15. 

According to International Dot Day’s website, "The Dot tells the story of a caring teacher who reaches a reluctant student in a remarkably creative way. The teacher dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to make her mark."

So Patch readers, here is your chance to make your mark. Whether you take inspiration from this book and make your own dot or express yourself through any other creative form, take a second to be "brave enough" to put it out there for the world to see by clicking 'Upload Photo & Video' above or below the photo gallery. 

“I just love the idea behind this–just make a mark and see where it takes us, be courageous enough to be creative,” said Seiden. “Adults need to model this and our world needs more of this.”

A section of the International Dot Day's website is devoted to 'Celebri-dots,' which are dots created by celebrities and other well-known authors, illustrators and more. , who has been a special guest at North Branford libraries, has her own dot featured, which matches the theme.
