  1. Take & Make: DIY Seuss Games

    March 9, 2021, 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Main Library

    Join your library as we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with some great craft projects inspired by his works. This Take & Make activity will be available for pickup at your Main Library starting March 1 and available through March 12. With this craft, you’ll be able to create your own dice to play a fun Dr. Seuss game titled “Even and Odd Things.” Not only will you challenge a friend to the “You Win” square, you’ll do so by also practicing your math skills by adding your rolling of the dice twice. One of you can only move if the sum of the throws are even, and the other can only move if their sum is odd. Come pick up your packet and see who will be victorious.
