Visit the library to read from A to Z this summer.
Dan Myers' sculpture, "Open the Window of the Imagination - Read" shows the titles of many famous children's books that are favorites of Mr. Myers and the librarians at the Thomas Crane Public Library. We found it very hard to choose because there are so many great book. This summer we challenge you to explore the whole library as you create your own list of great authors from A to Z. Each person who completes the challenge will receive a certificate and a medal. In September the medals will be awarded in a special ceremony. Come on into the Children's Room to grab a copy of the A to Z Challenge sheet or print one out at home !
