Birmingham Public Library Celebrating Read Across America Day on March 2


If you drop by one of the Birmingham Public Library (BPL)’s 19 locations on Thursday, March 2, there is a good chance you will encounter a staff member dressed in Dr. Seuss gear. BPL is joining thousands of libraries, schools, and community centers across the country participating in Read Across America Day, a nationwide celebration that takes place annually on March 2—the birthday of the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.

BPL staffers such as storytellers Candice Hardy of the Five Points West Regional Branch Library and Myra Gentry of the North Birmingham Regional Branch Library have already gotten into the spirit, dressing up as famous Dr. Seuss’ characters while entertaining young library patrons by reading such classics as The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham.
