With the warm weather we’ve been having I’m surprised the daffodils and crocus haven’t started poking their heads up yet. I’ve lived here long enough to know these temps won’t last very long, but I hope you’ve all enjoyed it while it was here!  Now that the holidays are over, everyone seems to just settle in with seed catalogs waiting for winter to end; but spring really is just around the corner.  And with that, comes our National Read Across America Day, celebrated on and around the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.  Seuss was born in 1904 and was a poet, writer, and cartoonist.  He wrote over 60 books, selling over 600 million copies and even helped create four movies and a Broadway musical.  His books, which are famous for rhyming, have been translated to more than 200 languages.  He actually spent almost a year writing a book to make sure it was ‘just right’ before publication.  And even though he did most of his writing over 60 years ago, there is not a library in the world that doesn’t have Dr. Seuss books because they are to this day, meaningful and educational to children. So to help celebrate his life and encourage our youngsters to read, we will be holding our annual Dr. Seuss party on Saturday 3 March.  Time is yet to be determined, but rest assured it will be an event you and your children won’t want to miss!  I’ll keep you posted on the time, and look for the flyers we’ll be putting up around town!  I hope you all stay warm and healthy – and drop by for a good book or two to get you through these long winter nights.  We’ll see you soon, right here, at your Snyder Library!
