Spring Flower Bulb Fundraiser by the Friends of HTFL

The Friends of HTFL are, once again, raising money for the Library. Don't miss the opportunity to beautify your garden with your purchase of flower bulbs through the Friends' online Spring Fundraiser.  Purchase the bulbs online and they will be shipped directly to your house.  All you need is the trowel!  

50% of the profits go to the Friends to help the Library purchase the "extras" such as televisions, audio equipment, Summer Reading Club programs for your enjoyment-I could go on and on.

Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss!

Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2! Did you know...

At the time of Theodor Seuss Geisel's death in 1991, his 46 children's books had sold more than 200 million copies, and his last, Oh, the Places You'll Go! (1990), was still on the bestseller lists.

He also worked as a political cartoonist, an advertising illustrator, and a documentary filmmaker.

His first book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street (1937), was rejected by twenty-eight publishers before it finally found a home at Random House.

Random House will be publishing an illustrated picture book from Dr. Seuss on July 28th (see previous blog post).

A "New" Dr. Seuss Book

It's shaping up to be a summer of lost books from beloved authors. Following the news of a Harper Lee manuscript being published this summer (a sequel to her classic novel To Kill a Mocking bird), Random House will be publishing an illustrated picture book from Dr. Seuss on July 28th.
 
Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Theodore Geisel) passed away in 1991.  His widow, Audrey Geisel, along with Claudia Prescott (Seuss's friend and secretary) recently discovered an illustrated picture book in the late author's office titled What Pet Should I Get.
 
According to the Wall Street Journal, the book will be the first of a few newly discovered works that will be published in the near future.
