Today, Wednesday, March 1 will see a special event at the Escalon Public Library, 1540 Second St., to mark the occasion of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The program starts at 3 p.m. and parents and children are welcome to visit the library, which will be turned into a grove of Truffula trees, and create their own Cat in the Hat hat, which they can take home. Also, stop by the planting station outside the library to plant a seed and take the plant home, care for it and watch it grow.
Finally, an appearance by popular puppeteer and storyteller Tony Borders is scheduled at 4 p.m., open to all ages.
Also, the next in the Science Saturdays series at the library is scheduled for this Saturday, March 4 at noon.
This month’s program will feature Cup Towers; it’s time to put your building skills to the test. Participants can compete against each other, the clock and gravity to build the tallest tower made entirely out of cups. The team that makes the tallest cup tower will win a prize.
Science Saturdays is a series of programs designed to engage kids in science and math through activities and experiments, stories, guest visitors and more.
