Surprise Author Visit!!

We were thrilled today to have a surprise guest visit us at the library! Author David Elliott was in the area visiting a school, and decided to drop in and say "Hello!" To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement!

David Elliott is the author of many great books, including In the Wild, a book of animal poems. In the Wild was listed on last year's Mock Caldecott reading list, which highlights the best picture books published each year.

Thanks for visiting, Mr. Elliott! And thanks for writing such wonderful books for children!

So happy that I popped in. I was thrilled to see such a big and beautiful space dedicated to young people and their books. And thanks so much for all you all do there. I don't think I go too far in saying that, in the end, it's some of the most vital work happening in the country, especially in our current environment. And here's to you, ACPL!
