Staron, library circulation supervisor, helps the Bunnies learn 'What Makes a Rainbow?' Librarian Georgia R. Laudenslager shares the story of 'Tiny the Snow Dog' (a canine who is anything but small) Imbuing her woodsy bedtime story with the sights and sounds of the forest  including the howl of a wolf  librarian Judy J. Zebrowski reads 'Time to Sleep, Alfie Bear!' Madigan Library faculty and staff entertained the Birds, Bees, Bunnies and Bears from Penn College’s Children’s Learning Center on Friday, enthusiastically sharing stories as part of the annual Read Across America observance that coincides with Dr. Seuss’ March 2 birthday. Scattered among three areas of the first and second floors, four library employees engaged with a repertoire of voices, animal sounds, facial expressions (and a fair amount of interaction from the youngsters) audiences that ranged from 18 months to 5 years old.
