The Children's Library


Four young girls are seated around a table in the Children's Library. One young girl, with a flower in her hair, is reading "Thistle and Thyme: Tales and Legends from Scotland" by Sorche Nic Leodhas, while the girl next to her in a sweater is reading "Stars, Mosquitoes and Crocodiles: The American Travels of Alexander von Humboldt" edited by Millicent Selsam. In the background children and adults are reading and browsing the shelves. Against the wall on the left, above angled reading surfaces, are drawings from Winnie the Pooh. Above those drawings is a relief depicting the characters from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' by artist Florence Thomas. On the back wall is the four-panel painting by Jack McLarty. Stuffed animals representing the A. A. Milne characters Eeyore, Kanga, and Roo reside on the reference desk. Transcribed from back of photo: '1963'.
