It will be a marathon day of reading.
The Shorewood Public Library, 3920 N. Murray Ave., will host a read-a-thon March 2 from 11 a.m to 3 p.m., inviting tykes to teens and in-between to read. It will center around Dr. Seuss' birthday and the joys of reading.
"Whether you stay for a short time or the entire day, there will be plenty of ways to celebrate your love of reading," the library's press release read.
The library will count the number of readers in the library that day, total number of minutes read, and total number of pages read.
Throughout the day celebrity readers will be on hand including WTMJ4’s Jessie Garcia, CBS 58’s Jessica Tighe, ComedySportz’s Dick Chudnow, Author/Illustrator Andy Rash, Tweed Funk vocalist/guitarist J.D. Optekar, and the Admiral’s mascot Roscoe.
There will also be refreshments, prize drawings and more.
