Several local celebrities came to the R.H. Stafford Branch Library in Woodbury in January to read to local youngsters as part of a Read-a-Thon.
Each was asked to read Dr. Seuss' classic Green Eggs and Ham, and Woodbury High School student David Schommer took video of the readers and spliced them together for this montage.
It was the latest in a string of volunteer efforts for Schommer, a young filmmaker who was recently honored with a Prudential Spirit of Community Award for using his skills to benefit the community.
The Read-a-Thon was one of several events under the library system's "One County, One Book" initiative. The program encouraged Washington County residents to read Alice Ozma's book, The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We Shared, between January and March.
The celebrity readers included Woodbury author Brian Freeman, WCCO-TV meteorologist Chris Shaffer, Woodbury City Council members and Patch editor Kris Janisch.
