The Grinch is on the run! Throughout the month of December the Laurens County Public Library Bookmobile is celebrating Christmas with a “Grinchy” spirit. The theme of the month is based on the classic children’s book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” by Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel.
The famous story follows the Grinch, a mean and grouchy creature, who attempts to bring an end to the joyous celebration of Christmas. Despite his best efforts, citizens of Whoville celebrate anyway and even bring happiness to the foul creature. As part of the library’s outreach services, this event through December is designed to encourage literacy during the holiday season. The Bookmobile has been transformed into Whoville, and staff members are portraying characters from the story.
This December, adults, families and children are invited to visit the Bookmobile and meet the friendliest Grinch in Laurens County. You can pickup up a book, CD or DVD and get a little holiday surprise from the “Grinchy” man and his friends. Don’t have a library card? No problem. There are books and goodies for you too!
As the Bookmobile makes it’s rounds through December, the Grinch and his friends will be traveling to locations in Clinton, Cross Hill, Gray Court, Greenpond, Hickory Tavern, Joanna, Lanford, Laurens, Mountville, Princeton, Ware Shoals, Waterloo and in Whitten Center.
