Easter!

This Thursday, April 1st, beginning at 5:30 join us for our annual Indoor Easter Egg Hunt!  Bring your basket and a bag of candy as we hunt for sweet treats inside the library.  Enjoy a spring story, Mr. Jeff doing balloons, and more!  Although the library will be taking a brief break from most children’s programming during the month of April to plan for our 2010 Summer Reading program (Make A Splash…READ!), watch for upcomming announcements about National Library Week, as well as our Water-Less Fish Fest, coming summer 2010!

Have a great week!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today, children all across the country are celebrating Read Across America Day, which is celebrated annually on Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  Born in 1904, Dr. Seuss would have been 106 today!  A favorite author of children of all ages, many don’t know the book “Cat in the Hat” was written using only 236 distinct words from a list of 400 words supplied by his publisher which they felt children would be learning in school.  After the publication of “Cat in the Hat”, Bennett Cerf, Dr. Seuss’s publisher, wagered $50 that Seuss could not write a book using only fifty different words.  From this challenge came the book “Green Eggs and Ham”.  To find out more about Read Across America Day, check out http://www.nea.org/readacross/
