JB Charleston celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday

By Joint Base Charleston Libraries

The Joint Base Charleston Libraries observed the birthday of the famous American children's writer, Dr. Seuss, in March with two celebrations for military members and their families, dedicated to remembering the wonders of his work.

More than 180 fans of all ages came out for the celebrations, with the Air Base Library hosting an event March 1, 2015 and the Weapons Station Library holding one March 5, 2015.

Traditionally, the event is celebrated at libraries and schools around the world during the month of March to recognize the author's birthday, March 2, 1904. The celebrations provide an opportunity to enjoy books that have thrilled and entertained readers for decades. The JB Charleston Libraries events included songs, a Dr. Seuss story time, games, crafts and birthday cupcakes.  Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2 also made an appearance at both programs. 

"The program was a huge success and everyone involved had a great time celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday, his books and memorable characters," said Angela Aschenbrenner, JB Charleston Libraries director.
