(4) Dr. Seuss Birthday Party/Children’s Book Exchange!
Tuesday March 6th on Merrimon

Ashley and I love Dr. Seuss. And what better way to celebrate that fact, and his Birfday, than to have a party/Give a book, take a book event?! Here’s what we have planned… 

From 11am to 10pm at The Hop on Merrimon, bring any children’s books (written by Dr. Seuss or otherwise) you may be looking to pass on, add them to the collection and feel free to take any books from that collection home with you. At the end of the day, all left over books will be donated to HelpMate, a local domestic violence organization. 

ALSO, From 6:30-7:30 you can enjoy the amazing Seuss-themed storytelling by Amelie Delaunay of Enchanted Stories for Free! 

(Dr. Seuss costumes are encouraged, though not required 🙂
