Classic Kids Literature

The other day some of the staff here at Fairbanks Branch Library were thinking about some of the books we really loved when we were growing up.  So, we decided to put together a new display of what we consider to be "classic" children's picture books and like to recommend to you for your pleasure.  Please browse the display--"Classic Kids Literature"--on your next visit to the library and check some out to share with family and friends.  If you have a favorite "classic" and we don't have it here at the library, please ask and we will interlibrary loan it for you.  Happy Reading!
