Great Bend Public Library, 1409 Williams St., will have several activities for children in March, starting with the birthday celebration of "Green Eggs and Ham" author Dr. Seuss. There will also be free movies, and four days of scheduled activities during spring break, said Eric Coulbourne, children’s librarian.
The birthday party for Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, will be at 3:30 p.m. this Wednesday. Children are invited to come for stories, games and a craft. "We will also be serving green eggs and ham!" Coulbourne said.
Geisel was born March 2, 1904. Under the pen name Dr. Seuss, he wrote many classic children’s books, including "The Cat in the Hat" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
On Friday the library will offer a free after-school movie at 3:30 p.m. In this month’s movie, a criminal mastermind uses a trio of orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, but finds himself profoundly changed by the growing love between them. Free popcorn will be served.
Spring Break Boredom Busters will be offered at 2 p.m. daily, March 21-24. Schedule activities are: Stories and crafts on Monday, games on Tuesday, bingo on Wednesday, and a Disney movie and free popcorn on Thursday. The March 24 movie is set in a world where superheroes are commonly known and accepted. In this venue, young Will Stronghold, the son of legendary heroes Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
