Library-Themed Picture Books Kids Will Adore
Posted on September 23, 2019

A lot of people visit the Library every day. As a matter of fact, public libraries across the United States welcomed 1.4 billion in-person visitors in 2016 alone, which equates to about 4 million visits per day or 2,664 per minute. That’s pretty amazing!
Libraries are fascinating places for children. After all, they have an incredible selection of books to spark little imaginations. And yes, I’m a little biased when it comes to singing the praises of the Library. However, I’m also a parent and our family regularly visits the Library, so this isn’t just an insider’s opinion.
Kids Love the Library
My kids absolutely love the Library! They get excited at the very mention of the Library because they know it’s a fun place to visit. They love the interactive touch screens, the fun play & learn areas and the variety of programs offered throughout the system. Just this past summer, my husband took our little ones to a marionette puppet show featuring the Wizard of Oz (my oldest is still talking about this program and it took place quite a while ago). Kids know what they like and are always excited to tell you all about whatever it is in full detail (so endearing — soak it up while it lasts — they grow up too fast!).
If your kids love the Library they will surely enjoy reading the picture books in this blog post featuring books and libraries.
Morris Lessmore loves words, stories and books, and after a tornado carries him to another land, dreary and colorless, he finds a single book in color that leads him to an amazing library where, he learns, the books need him as much as he needs them.
A quirky ode to spirit, identity and the joy of having a library card follows the adventures of Little Card, who delightedly anticipates going to school to become a birthday card only to trade jobs with Big Card and embark on a life at the library, where he struggles to use his exuberant gifts in a quiet environment.
