Dr. Seuss Night

It is that time of year again; the Raymond Village Library is hosting its annual Dr. Seuss Party on Friday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m. Each year, children of all ages and their parents gather to celebrate the great wordsmith’s birthday and because it has become so popular, the event will be held in the Raymond Elementary School gymnasium where there is more space. This party, which is free of charge, will feature games, crafts, storytelling, prizes and lots of fun for everyone. For more information, call the library at 655-4283.
