"The Day the Books Went Blank"
What happens if a library is not used, the collection not maintained, and the books not read? Would the pages go blank? That’s the outcome dramatized in “The Day the Books Went Blank”, a 1961 educational film intended to show the importance of maintaining quality libraries, from The Library Extension Agencies of the six New England States.
Remember your local library for Library Week (and every week)!
The theme of this year’s National Library Week is “Lives Change.” How has a library, or librarian, changed your life?

IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
