Miss Moore Thought Otherwise by Jan Pinborough

Miss Moore Thought Otherwise by Jan Pinborough, 40 pages

A long time ago, in the early 1900s, children were not allowed to take books from libraries.  People were afraid children would forget to return the books or get them dirty.  Anne Carroll Moore thought differently.  She moved to New York City and went to library school.  She went to work for the the New York Public Library and was put in charge of all the children's sections.  She believed children needed their own room in the library.  She worked to create the children's library.  This is an inspiring true story, beautifully illustrated by Debby Atwell.
