Free for all--reading treasures from the past!

Free for all--reading treasures from the past!


For a special treat, especially during the summer vacation months, visit Children's Literature: Digitized Print Materials, a free Federal Resources for Educational Excellence website that provides 50 digitized texts of rare books: The Arabian Nights, A Child's Garden of Verses, Ballad of the Lost Hare, A Christmas Carol, Humpty Dumpty, The Grasshopper Stories, Mother Goose Finger Plays, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, The Rocket Book, The Secret Garden, Stories from Hans Andersen, The Three Bears, Three Little Pigs, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and others from the Library of Congress.

If there is a PDF link, you can use the Acrobat viewer to peruse the material, and print it in its entirety. The bibliographic information link will query the Library's online catalog and display the catalog record for the item.
