What is the Poughkeepsie Public Library doing to introduce young readers to new books and authors?
The Poughkeepsie Public Library has a special day that kids, pre-teens, and even high schoolers can attend which introduces them to children's book authors and illustrators. The kids can ask questions about the process of writing the book, how the pictures are created, and more.
