Did you know there was a time when children were not welcome in public libraries? This is so hard for us to fathom because nowadays children are some of our best patrons! Anyway, there was really a time like that and this book teaches us about Miss Moore who was a pioneer in New York libraries and changed people's views on this. This lovely book gives us a great history lesson!
