“In early 1971, Hart wrote to dozens of actors, authors, artists, musicians, playwrights, librarians, and politicians of the day. She asked them to write a letter to the children of Troy about the importance of libraries, and their memories of reading and of books.”

Thank you for sharing this! I can’t wait to show it to my fellow children librarians across Barcelona public libraries. It’s such a great idea! 🙂
I like that message, a library is very important to every city, school, country, anywhere that there are people living. Library will stand as your teacher if there’s no one teaching you, your friend to be with, a parent to guide you, it’s a place where different knowledge of different people can be found.
