Pictures of the Week | #TakeYourChildToTheLibraryDay

On February 4, libraries across the country celebrated Take Your Child to the Library Day. Gavin Lawrence, 11, of Fairhaven, MA, and his mother Amanda, a library media specialist at Dartmouth High School in Dartmouth, MA, enjoy weekly visits to the Providence Athenaeum in Providence, RI. Here he is last weekend giving a thumbs-up to H.P. Lovecraft, an author who once frequented the same library.
