The storybook exhibit was arranged to help increase awareness of the art of dollmaking and also to increase children's interest in reading. Many patrons to the library raved about the exhibit last year saying it was one of the best in library history.
The exhibit was set up during the Bethlehem Christmas Town Festival last
year. This year, the display cases are reserved for that weekend along
with the month of December and the weekend prior to Thanksgiving (by
request of the library.) The Town Festival (being held on Dec. 7 & 8)
draws in hundreds of people over the
1 1/2 day event. Bethlehem is also famous for thousands of visitors
coming to the post office during the holiday season to have their
holiday cards stamped with the Bethlehem post mark. With the amount of
travelers coming through the center of Bethlehem, this is the best time
of year to set up the storybook exhibit.
Thank you! Pinocchio will be wonderful! The book will also be great, especially in the language of his origin. :)Thanks again! Greta
