UC San Diego Publications staff photographer Erik Jepsen, a frequent contributor to "Extension Newsroom," took this spectacular photo on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at dusk.
The iconic campus Geisel Library is named in honor of Audrey and Theodor Seuss Geisel (famed children's book author/illustrator Dr. Seuss) for their contributions to the library, the university and devotion to literacy.
The Geisels lived much of their lives in nearby La Jolla.
Opened in 1970, the library was first known as the Central Library and later as the University Library Building. It was renamed the Geisel Library in 1995.
The library's Mandeville Special Collections is home to more than 10,000 items in its Dr. Seuss Collection, which includes original drawings, sketches, manuscript drafts, books, notebooks, photographs and memorabilia, documenting the full range of his literary career.
