Library book / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. Library book. 2004. 4 pages. (8.5 x 5.5″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the publisher’s website: Wendy Cain tells an amusing story about how she came to read all of Andrew Lang’s Colour Fairy Books. Her Mother had died and the family moved into the city near a library. When she visited the library the librarian asked her what kind of books she liked. The librarian led her to the section of fairy tales. Cain visited this section for several weeks before an observant librarian introduced her to other book shelves in the library. Thus, began Cain’s life of books.
