Books+Music=Seuss-a-Palooza

 

Though the days may be chilly and nothing like sunny, you can still have lots of fun that is funny. That’s the firm belief your Metropolitan Library System and the Oklahoma City Orchestra League has as they join forces to present “Seuss-a-Palooza!”

It’s a series of programs presenting stories and music that will bring the magical world of Dr. Seuss alive for kids of all ages. “I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss,” said MLS Executive Director Donna Morris. “Even the Grinch Who Stole Christmas finally came around. ‘Seuss-a-Palooza’ combines the fun of Dr. Seuss’ books with the glory of music to give children a New Year’s treat they’ll still be talking about next summer.”

The event is made up of a series of programs spread around the library system and beyond. The library programs are free, but preregistration is requested at many locations. Visit the MLS Website for Musical Storytimes and activities in conjunction with Seuss-A-Palooza www.metrolibrary.org/seuss.

“We know this is already creating some excitement,” Morris said. “One of the programs, a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Philharmonic at the Downtown Library is already booked solid, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other events fill up as well.” There’s still plenty of fun to be had at these other “Seuss-a-Palooza” events:

You can join the orchestra on Sunday, January 16th at 1:00p.m. for “Bravo Dr. Seuss! Discovery Family Concert” at the Civic Center Music Hall. Call 405-TICKETS to purchase tickets. Metropolitan Library System programs are free but registration is required at some locations. Call 606-3837 for more information.
