First graders toured the Newton Public Library this week, and more will be coming in November. Abeer Shanta is pictured with her new book, provided by the Friends of the Newton Public Library. The Friends of the Library sponsor the annual tours for first graders in Newton schools. The students learn about the public library and how to take good care of library books from Youth Services Librarian Phyllis Peter and enjoy some stories and a book to keep.
