Loud Mouse Bookmark
September is Library Card Sign-up Month – Celebrate with Loud Mouse!
“Find your voice at the la, la, la, library—get a library card.” So says Dee (aka Loud Mouse) in this new bookmark. Dee loves to sing. Everything, all the time! So, when her teacher asks everyone to share something with the class, Dee shares a song. And as she sings la, la, la, LOUDly in front of her class for the first time, something extraordinary happens. . .
Whether it’s diving into a new hobby, building business skills, engaging with the community, or discovering new books, music, media, and technology, the library is a place where everyone can thrive. This September, encourage members of your community to get a library card and watch their dreams and imaginations sing!
From writer and teacher Cara Mentzel and her Tony Award-winning sister Idina Menzel, Loud Mouse is available September 27. Special thanks to Jaclyn Sinquett for original art.
