Unique Maine Farms
Celebrates NEA’s Read
Across America Day

Since 1997, the National Education Association has chosen March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss, as a day to celebrate reading in the United States with their Read Across America Day. All different events are planned.

This year in Maine, the Unique Maine Farms' project has collaborated with the Maine State Library to see that every town, city, and college library in Maine receive a complimentary copy of Unique Maine Farms,  a 296-page 

book that profiles 178 farms found throughout the state. 

Through the generosity of several foundations, organizations, businesses, and individuals, funding was raised for the donation of the books.  The Maine State Library has stepped  forward to assist with the distribution of the 302 books to the libraries through their Van Delivery and mailings.

Mary Quinn Doyle, author of Unique Maine Farms, expressed

her gratitude to all those who have played a part over the past two-and-a-half years in supporting the volunteer project and in validating the importance of books and reading. She was particularly pleased that the donated books, which celebrate agriculture in Maine and the national Read Across America Day, were printed in Maine on Maine paper.
