Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

"Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go."

That's the first 2 pages from one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. Can you guess which one it is?
We're celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday next Monday, March 3rd, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Youth Services Department. All kids up to 3rd grade are invited to enjoy the games, treats, activity pages and stories read by Police Chief McDevitt. Be sure to check out the prizes on display at the circulation desk, they're all looking for a good home!

"So...
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on you way!"
