Just a little update: Children’s Institute’s library is still going strong and we have a thriving program despite our small space. Last year we started a summer reading program “Camp Read-a-lot” that drew...

A Letter from Alicia Fox at the Children’s Institute

[This letter was in response to asking if she needed help unpacking/sorting/shelving/etc.] Hi there! Thank you! I will need help sorting or labelling but I’m not sure when. I’ve been obsessed with opening the boxes each day and condensing them into the bigger boxes. If I didn’t I would run out of room! I’ve been off Monday and Tuesday this week and am fearing the pile...
