Books are Golden

Do you remember reading the Little Golden Books as a child? This significant series made illustrated books for children available for the low price of 25 cents. The books were introduced in 1942 during World War II, and are still available today.

Some of my favorites from the library's collection are The Poky Little Puppy, Scuffy the Tugboat, and Tawny Scrawny Lion.

After reading these books you might want to take a trip to visit one of our Museum Adventure Pass partners, the Lake County Discovery Museum to see a special exhibit called Golden Legacy. Sixty pieces of original art from popular stories will be on exhibit through August 22, 2010. After you look at the art, you can step into several classic Golden Book stories with some hands-on activities.

I hope you enjoy learning about the history of children's books. Be sure to stop at the Youth Services Desk for more information about our Museum Adventure Pass program.
