#REAL Thanks Librarians

#theREALProgram #RosemaryWellsAuthorVisitTour was so successful today! Each #library was well attended and each place had its own unique characteristics but all so beautiful. The #maxandRuby author/illustrator shared the stories behind the stories- interesting tales of each of the characters and how she uses different every-day items to create depth in her images; cheerios, chex mix, rice, lentils, straw brooms are some ideas. 

Huge shout out to the #dedicatedlibrarians at #LynnpublicLibrary, #LuciusBeebeMemorialLibrary in Wakefield and #IpswichPublicLibrary.
