This week, we welcomed two classes of Pre-K children from Baylor's Piper Center for Family Studies and Child Development. The teachers there asked their students what kinds of field trips they wanted to take this year, and one of them was to a "big library," and what bigger library in town than our own Moody Memorial Library!

I was excited to take these eager young learners on a tour of the building, talk to them about what kinds of things people do at the library, and show them samples of books (an oversized atlas and a tiny book, a rare edition of Le Avventure del Piccolo Ippopotamo by Dorothy Kunhardt, translated into Portuguese, 1949). The tour closed with a reading of B Is For Baylor, complete with an all-class Sic 'Em!

Thanks to our friends at Piper for bringing your enthusiastic, excited and - we hope - lifelong library fans for a visit. Come back any time!
