B Is for Bookworm
A Library AlphabetBook - 2005
Readers learn the history of libraries and books through the letters of the alphabet. Libraries, like books and kids, come in all shapes and sizes and are as individual as every story and freckled face. Readers will learn about Kenya's Camel Library Service, Zimbabwe's Donkey Libraries, and Northern Europe's Book Boats. There is so much to discover and celebrate about the history and inner workings of our community libraries. How do libraries keep track of all the volumes? Where was the first library and who was its first librarian? How many miles of books are housed in the Library of Congress? And what is the scriptoria?
