    LANSING, Mich., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- You won't find Green Eggs and Ham
 in the Rare Book Collection at the Library of Michigan, but you will find a
 lesser-known work by Dr. Seuss -- his World War II-era pamphlet created for
 the War Department.  Entitled This is Ann -- She's Dying to Meet You, the 1943
 pocket book shows service men how malaria is contracted through the bite of
 the Anopheles mosquito.  That's just one of over 10,000 books featured in this
 collection, which specializes in the rare, the unique and the unusual.
     The Rare Book Collection showcases many interesting materials that provide
 a singular peek into Michigan's history.  Hundreds of historic maps, railroad
 and ferryboat schedules, 19th-century sheet music, and a law book printed in
 1490 are waiting to be enjoyed by Library of Michigan patrons.  The
 collection's natural history books from the 1880s offer beautiful hand-colored
 plates that depict species common to Michigan and North America.  The
 collection is non-circulating, but patrons may view the materials by
 appointment within the Library.  Please contact the Rare Book Curator for more
 information at 517-373-9464.
     The Library of Michigan is a nationally recognized, visible, electronic
 and traditional library and leadership development center that serves as a
 vital information resource to the legislature, state government and citizens
 of Michigan.  The Library provides primary reference and research services to
 the state legislature and other government agencies, administers state aid to
 public libraries and oversees federal aid for all types of libraries.  The
 Library of Michigan serves as one of the two regional libraries for the
 federal documents depository program.  It also features outstanding
 collections of Michigan history and genealogy.  It is one of the state's two
 regional libraries that provide services to the blind and physically
 handicapped.  The Library of Michigan website is located at
 http://libraryofmichigan.org or you may telephone 517-373-1580.  The Library
 of Michigan is located at 717 West Allegan Street in Lansing, Michigan, in the
 Michigan Library and Historical Center.
