From there to here and here to there, funny things were everywhere for area kids Sunday at the Oberlin Public Library’s 20th annual Dr. Seuss Day. The event is sponsored by the Oberlin College chapter of America Reads. Those in attendance were treated to live performances from costumed Dr. Seuss characters, crafts, games, and readings of classic tales. Dr. Seuss Day commemorates the March 2 birthday of the famous children’s author, otherwise known as Theodor Seuss Geisel.
