Gigantic libraries are superb, of course. And small libraries in community centers are also good because they can be reached on foot even by small kids themselves. One of my friends is in charge of a nearby library voluntarily and she wanted more kids to visit the library. That library has 3,000 books and picture books selected carefully so I totally agreed with her. We decided to hold a one-day library at my place, which faces the street where lots of kids walk to and from their primary school. Her sons and my daughters helped us draw posters and signboards, and put them on along the street. I set up a big parasol in front of my house and decorated the place with lots of balloons. My friend displayed books and picture books especially chosen for the day. We spread a picnic mat, put out small chairs and cushions and hung a cotton canopy from the garage pole.Volunteers came to help us on the day. To our joy, kids did come to our library! Some of them read by themselves and others read for smaller kids. One of volunteer staff gave picture-story shows under a half-transparent canopy which separated their world from outside. Even a press agent from the city visited us to interview and take pictures of us. I thank the volunteers who are working to enrich kids’ interests and capacities. I hope more and more neighbors learn about them and make use of their nearest and wonderful library.
