Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration!

by Tanya DiMaggio, Children's Services Coordinator

Come one! Come all! Grab your Hat and read with the Cat!

Help us celebrate Dr. Seuss' 115th birthday! March 2 is his official birthday and is designated Read Across America day. We will be joining in with classrooms and libraries around the country to celebrate reading and the world of Dr. Seuss. Of course we can't limit the celebration to just one day! There will be activities at all of the branch libraries spread out over a week. Join us for favorite books, crafts, and more.

No registration is required. Several branches will serve birthday cake at their event. Please call the branch for details. Please inform the librarian of any food allergies at least one week in advance. We are happy to make accommodations for you.

The Official Read Across America Poem:

You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,
To pick up a book and read with a child.
You're never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
To pick up a book and share what you've got.

In schools and communities,
Let's gather around,
Let's pick up a book,
Let's pass it around.

There are kids all around you,
Kids who will need
Someone to hug,
Someone to read.

Come join us March 2nd
Your own special way
And make this America's
Read to Kids Day.
