Re: Who Remembers the Parkside Library's Summer Reading Program?06/05/16

I used to live at the Parkside branch. I actually got to ride the streetcar up there all by myself! I vaguely remember the reading program and may or may not have entered or completed one. I tended to start things full of enthusiasm and drop them minutes later.
What I do remember is reading the entire OZ series - one right after the other - with the great illustrations. It's fun to note that the illustrations were at once both simpler and much more grand than many book illustrations, today.
This was probably 1960 - after seeing The Wizard of Oz on TV - in color!!
