Display - 2013 Geisel Awards


Come by the Children's Library to check out this very special display! 
Carla Morris, our Children's Services Manager, was the head of the 2013 Theodore Seuss Geisel Award Committee. The Geisel Award is given annually to the author(s) and illustrator(s) of the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in English in the United States during the preceding year. 
This display features autographs, drawings, and memorabilia from this year's awards ceremony. Don't miss it!
