One copy of every Dummies book in print is a lot of books — over 1,800 as Gwinnett County Public Library [GA] recently found out. As the winners of Wiley’s For Dummies 2011 Library Contest, the library won the full set of the books by creating a Dummies Fan Page on Facebook and gathering the most “Likes” (5,002).
Gwinnett County P.L. mascot Dewey the Dinosaur was assisted in unloading the books by The Dummies Man last week (it must have been hot inside those costumes).
It seems nobody told him that processing books is not for dummies.
Wiley is currently running a Frommer’s Library Display Contest, with the chance to win a visit and travel talk from Arthur and Pauline Frommer, as well as 50 Frommer’s travel guides.
