Happy Birthday, Cat In The Hat! (2007)

The Cat in the Hat is 50!
Come celebrate with us! The much-loved Cat in the Hat is 50, and we'd like to celebrate the birthday by bringing the world of Dr. Seuss to life. We'll have lots of Dr. Seuss games, crafts, and fun at the Youth Services area in the Main Library -- and what are we serving for lunch? Why, green eggs and ham, of course!
This event is free for the entire family. We'd love to see you there, Sam-I-Am! We'll have a Seuss-ational time!
