HIGHLANDS – Stratford Library celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss on Wednesday, March 2. About 35 children attended the party and enjoyed party favors, bookmarks, cake, punch and crafts to commemorate the occasion. On that day, Theodore Geisel, or Dr. Seuss, was born and since his death this day has become Read Across America.

Sarah Davis, branch manager and Jeanette Jett, assistant librarian at Stratford, enjoyed the festivities clowning around with Green Eggs and Ham that was on display. The eggs and ham were not offered as part of the culinary delectibles to the public. Green Eggs and Ham was read as the token Dr. Seuss book and all had a wonderful time.
