Who brings books and children together? The children's librarian, of course!

Here's the story of Miss Terry and the library in which she works, written for beginning readers by a real-life children's librarian who understands what children want to know.

Miss Terry shows Andy and his classmates what goes on in the many departments of a busy library. She explains such special community services as books for the blind and the hospitalized. She tells how the bookmobile meets community needs.

With a sense of fun as well as with accuracy, Lucy Hawkinson uses her pen-and-ink drawings to show Miss Terry and her friends.

First and last, this is an easy-to-read book that builds appreciation for those who devotedly serve their communities through libraries—the librarians and their helpers.
