March is here! This month may come in like a lion, but with longer days and (somewhat) warmer temperatures, we know spring is on the way.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday tomorrow (March 2), at the main library there will be Seuss- themed storytimes (10 AM for preschoolers, 11 AM for toddlers) with cake afterwards. Then at 4:30 PM, at the MacKay branch in North Chelmsford, join us for an extra-special storytime with Bonnie Rankin. We’ll read stories, maybe act some out, and end with….birthday cake!
