NEWTON — From celebrating Dr. Seuss to shaking off the winter doldrums to a Zumba beat there is plenty to do in March at the Sussex County Libraries.
The fun will begin Saturday, March 1 at 10 a.m. with a Read Across America program at the Dorothy Henry branch in Vernon. Kids in preschool through fourth grade and their families are invited to come celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday with guest readers, games, crafts and more.
Dr. Seuss will turn 110 this year, but if that’s not old enough for you, kids in grades 3-6 also are invited to the Sussex-Wantage branch (same date and time) for an informative program on how fossils teach us about the plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. S
till out and about? Stop by the Main Library in Frankford at 2:00 p.m. to watch a film based on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series.
The fun continues the first full week of March with story time opportunities at the Dorothy Henry, Sussex-Wantage and Dennis branches; a book discussion group at the Louise Childs branch in Stanhope; yoga, knitting, even more story times for kids 6 months though pre-K, gaming for kids in grades three and up, the Animanga club for teens, a writer’s support group for adults and the aforementioned Zumba all at Main Library in Frankford.
