Volunteers will read Dr. Seuss stories to students at preschools, daycare’s, elementary schools and on the university campus throughout the school day Friday to commemorate the legacy of the famous poet, writer and cartoonist. Participating schools include Childcare Network, Little Caterpillars Development Center, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church Day School, Blandy Hills Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Midway Elementary and Eagle Ridge Elementary.
Mary Vinson Memorial Library will entertain pre-K children of Little Caterpillars and St. Stephen’s with a puppet show, story time and literacy activities at 9 and 10 a.m. Friday at the Georgia College library.
“It started out as a GIVE Center event through a grant a few years ago. It sort of tethered out and last year, a couple of ladies from Georgia College library decided to take it on and it got new life breathed into it,” Georgia College E-Learning Librarian Liz Thompson said of the campus Dr. Seuss event. “The purpose of the annual event is to promote the love of learning and to really get children to enjoy learning as soon as possible. It also brings the community together.”
