News from the Stacks
by Jan Brett is a children’s classic about a little boy who drops his white mitten in the snow, becoming home to several woodland animals. When the Library learned there were Oak Brook School students needing winter items, library staff knitted hats, mittens, and gloves for these students since the items are hard to find this severe winter season. We hope everyone is keeping warm and toasty this snowy season!
