Kicking Off the 90th Anniversary of RML!

You may have seen on our website that we are beginning the 90th year celebration of the Richmond Memorial Library! (1924-2014) 
Here on the kids blog, we're going to highlight some of the great children's books from each decade, starting with the 1920's. I'm just going to focus on ones that we own here at RML. We'll try to have as many of them as we can available for checkout, so you and your children can share the journey with us! What a great way to learn a little history - through the context of children's books!
