Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Dr. Seuss is one of the most beloved authors of children’s book in the English language. I created a book trough about 2 weeks ago celebrating the event (the trough banner is featured above). I originally filled it with Seuss board books, picture books, easy readers, and Spanish versions, and could not keep the trough stocked often enough!  Even the more obscure titles are circulating. I ended up adding CD kits (each kit contains a book and CD) and audiobooks just to keep the trough from looking empty. I think it’s great that this will bring some attention to the kits and audiobooks. I’m sure that some patrons who would never give these items a second look may be tempted to try them out. Hmmm, this gives me an idea – the next time we feature an author, perhaps we can create flyers or bookmarks to promote the ebook versions. We can also include the qr code to make it easier for those with devices that have qr code readers (see previous post here). Definitely something to thing about.
