March 2 is both Texas Indendence Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday. How did I celebrate? By visiting the R. C. Miller Public Library in Beaumont, Texas, which happens to have this fantastic, groovy, Dr. Seuss-esque sculpture of a card catalog (titled “Vintage Search Engine”, sculpted by Jerolyn Bahm-Colombik and Roger Colombik to honor Ben S. Woodhead, Jr. for his service at the R. C. Miller Library) outside by the back entrance. They sell the BEST selection of books for $1 apiece in the back of the library there.
There is a light that they illuminate this Seuss-y statue with and a plaque with a inscription that reads: Ben S. Woodhead, Jr. Courtyard in recognition of his vision and dedication to the Miller Library Vintage Search Engine Jerolyn Bahm-Colombik & Roger Colombia Wimberly, TX 2014
