Story hour at Southwest Hills Branch, 1959


A photograph of children ages 5-9 enjoying the last story hour before vacation at the Southwest Hills Branch with librarian Mary B. Mason. The librarian is holding up a book for the kids to see as she reads to them. One row of children are seated on the floor. Behind them are two more rows of children seated in chairs or on benches. One boy is wearing a button or name tag that reads 'ANDY.' Two boys stand in the back and a young girl is further back by a water fountain. The Southwest Hills Branch was later renamed Hillsdale Library.
