The Cat in the Hat turns 50!!

Happy Birthday to the Cat in the Hat!! What can you do to celebrate? Join in the 10th Annual NEA Read Across America Day on March 2. The site has lots of ideas for how your library can participate in this annual event. Also on this site, you can send a birthday card to the Cat in the Hat. For each card received, Random House will donate one book to First Book, a national nonprofit with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.

If any MVLS library that would like to borrow our Cat in the Hat for the week of March 2nd, let Sue know by February 5. We will have a drawing if more than one library requests him. (We even have a birthday hat for him to wear!)
