Librarian Trish Collins from the Glasgow City-County library reads Dr. Seuss at Valley View Home on March 6 to celebrate Dr. Seuss' 113th birthday.

The Glasgow City-County Library hosted their weekly story time at Valley View Home on March 6. Young and old came together to celebrate Dr. Seuss' 113th birthday with books, crafts and a green-egg sugar cookie.

Librarian Trish Collins, dressed up as Cat in the Hat, read to those in attendance iconic books from Dr. Seuss' collection. Participants of all ages enjoyed the ability to celebrate an iconic author. After story time, participants colored and painted Thing 1 and Thing 2, characters from the book 'The Cat in the Hat.' Residents at Valley View joined in on the fun, enjoying the time spent with the younger generations of Glasgow.

Every Thursday from 10 – 11 a.m. the library welcomes children of all ages to come in and enjoy a good book, sing and various other activities with librarians. Valley View will host again on Thursday, April 6 and Thursday, May 4. According to library director, Megan Haddix, having story time at a different location allows the children and parents to, "engage in a different spot with different people."

The next story time will be held at the library's Horizon Room (located in the library basement) on Thursday, March 9 at 10 a.m. The library will be celebrating International Bag Pipe Day, and will have a special guest from Circle who will show off their bag piping skills.

If you have any questions or would like more information you can contact the Glasgow City-County library at 228-2731 or stop by at 408 3rd Ave S, Glasgow.
