I Remember That Book!

by Dawn Stoops | Feb 15, 2017
The Allen County Public Library is your place for hot new titles and just released DVDs but we've got so much more!
Consider this gem recently returned to the Grabill Branch Library.

This is Bugs Bunny's Space Carrot by Seymour Reit, published in 1977. I had flashbacks to my cartoon watching days when I read how Bugs Bunny was preparing his "wocket fuel" and building his space carrot "Out of tin cans. And bed springs. And cookie cutters. And old bicycle parts. And some pieces of used bubble gum." Walking down memory lane with a book like this is so much fun and fairly easy to do. Librarians love searching the catalog for books customers remember from childhood, even if we don't have complete title and author information to work with.

This copy shows a little love, but that's just evidence of many trips to the homes of happy library book readers. The Allen County Public Library has more than a million physical books. Some, like this one, are fantastic, fun blasts from the past.
