Goodnight Moon Room
“In the great, green room…” So begins Margaret Wise Brown’s classic children’s picture book Goodnight Moon.  For this year’s Summer Reading Program kick-off event today (theme:  Dream Big: READ!) a replica of the great, green room was beautifully recreated by our resident artist, Library Assistant and 2ndyear professional library school student, Barbara Daniels.  The “look-but- don’t -touch” “Goodnight Moon Room” has been the object of respectful awe from the moment the library doors opened this morning!  Many children are very familiar with this gentle, bedtime tale and its soothing illustrations, as are their parents and even their grandparents!  
At closing time, the components of the great, green room will be carefully “put to bed” in a quiet corner of the basement storage area until the next time the Library has an opportunity to assemble it for a special event.  Until then, good night, room.
