Libraries were not always open to the public and free as they are today. The very idea of a children's library didn't exist until the late 19th century. It was Anne Carroll Moore who helped transform the library from a place where children were routinely turned away to a place with a room of their own-a joyfully decorated room with chairs their size, art by children's book illustrators, and windows with low seats. Most important of all, Anne Carroll Moore fought for children's borrowing privileges and filled her library shelves with hundreds and hundreds of the best children's books in many different languages. Vibrantly illustrated with Debby Atwell's American folk art, this inspiring story invites children into the world of the first Children's room in the New York Public Library and introduces them to one of America's most accomplished and influential women.
