Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

The library is celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday all week long with special storytimes full of silly rhymes and classic Seuss stories.

Dr. Seuss has been a staple of children's literature since the 1930s. Characters like Horton, the Grinch, the Lorax, and of course, the Cat in the Hat, have a special place in many of our childhoods. Check out Dr. Seuss books at your library. You're never too young or too old to appreciate his special brand of humor and creativity.

For a special Dr. Seuss experience, check out this suggestion from a library staff member:
"Many high school graduates receive a copy of the Dr. Seuss’ book, Oh! The Places You'll Go as a graduation present. A fun and meaningful way to share this classic book is to purchase a copy for your child beginning in preschool and ask your child’s teacher to write a message in the book about their experience for each school year."

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss and thank you for sharing your world with readers of all ages!
