Excerpt from The Lincoln School Library

One day we all went up to the library. We sat around Miss Eaton's desk and Miss Eaton told us a story of the little lame prince, how he had been shut up in a tower and couldn't see anybody and nobody could see him, and one day a fairy godmother came into the tower and brought him a magic travelling cloak, and she said he could sit on the travelling cloak and wish where he wanted to go and it would take him where he wished. After that Miss Eaton told us that we have a magic travelling cloak, just as much as the little lame prince had and what do you suppose that is? They are books. All over Miss Eaton's desk she had selected books which she thought the second grade could read and we have been deciding where we wanted to go and they have taken us all over the world.

This is another way we use the library. Augustus had finished his battleship. He asked Miss Curtis to guess what he wanted to do. Miss Curtis asked, What? Augustus said, I am going to put my ship in full dress. That means with all the ags ying as they came into harbour a few days ago. Miss Curtis said, What ags do ships y? Augustus said, I don't know. Miss Curtis asked where you can find out and Augustus said, I don't know. Miss Curtis said, You go to the library to find out things like that. He came in very early one morning. He went up to the library and came down with this book, Flags of the World. It tells you about all the ags of the navy. And that is another way we use the library for any information.

In the second assembly a Shelf of Books was represented. Each grade selected one or more books and children from each grade in costume represented the book or books selected. Another group Of children, representing readers in the library and the libra rian in person, talked about the books on the shelf. The second half Of the program emphasized the importance Of taking care Of books; the sixth grade told Of the different processes which go to the making of a book; the fifth grade showed by lists and charts the increasing cost Of books; the fourth grade explained certain careless ways of treating books, which damage them and destroy the pleasure of other readers.. The material used in their talks was suggested and worked out by the children themselves. There follow some of the children's letters written to the librarian after the assembly. Each paragraph is a separate letter.
