Children of all ages celebrated Dr. Seuss on his birthday, Wednesday, at our Main Branch.
Kids made wockets for their pockets, pinned green eggs onto their plates, and even had some birthday cake.
Of course, there were also Dr. Seuss books available that people read with their child.
Mentor Library wasn’t alone in celebrating Seuss. Schools and libraries across the country remember the man and his stories as part of the annual event, Read Across America. The National Education Association started it in 1998 to honor Seuss and celebrate the joy of reading.
Each year, Read Across America is scheduled to coincide with Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2.
