(2 Minute Read) Dover, Ohio – The children’s department at the Dover Public Library will celebrate Dr Seuss’ birthday by hosting a birthday party.
On Tuesday March 3, 2020 at 6pm the children’s department will celebrate Dr Seuss with a Seuss story followed by a wocket in your pocket craft, Seussical snacks and Ten on Top game.
Dr Seuss’ official birthday would have been Monday March 2 and he would have been 116 years old. This day is celebrated by the National Education Association who advocated for a day to celebrate reading all over the United States.
The library has a Dr Seuss book display with books and movies for people to check out. Ms Jen the children’s department manager will be reading Dr. Seuss stories throughout the month of March at the story times on Wednesdays at 10am, 11am and 2pm. Dr Seuss related crafts will be made at the preschool story times which are 11am and 2pm.
“We love Dr Seuss, so the whole month of March we will hide 10 truffula trees throughout the children’s area.” says Jen Gardner, Children’s Department Manager. “Kids can come in and find the trees, tell a staff member and receive 1 prize per week.” Jen Gardner added.
