There will be an easy craft available each day. The library hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m Wednesday through Saturday.

Books for give-away are provided through Families And Communities Together (F.A.C.T.) from First Books. The Seuss Celebration is free and open to the public. A library card is not required to participate. For more information, contact Amber Cooley at 573-221-0222 or
