Categories: Blogs


Move over Howard Roark, there are a few new architects in the library. In celebration of reading month, JDL has highlighted many different children’s books through programming in the month of March. One of the selections is Steven Guarnaccia’s architectural-inspired take on the Three Little Pigs. While this is a fun take on a classic children’s story, Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale also offers a closer look at the work of famous architects like Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

March’s programming also includes activities around Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping, Tap the Magic Tree, LEGOs and more. You can view a list of all of the reading month programming here.
