"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child" (Dr. Seuss).
Join us for a belated celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday as Reading Month comes to a close. This time-honored storyteller would have been 110 years old this year! Children in grades K-2, with a caregiver, are welcome to enjoy stories, crafts, and games. Come prepared to sing an enthusiastic rendition of Happy Birthday.
