Happy birthday, Hans Christian Andersen!

To commemorate the birthday of Hans Christian Andersen on April 2, the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) has celebrated International Children's Book Day on this day since 1967. Events pertaining to the holiday include writing competitions, book award ceremonies, and children's literature events. Why not celebrate the day yourself by heading to one of the Free Library's children's programs? Visit the Preschool Storytime at our South Philadelphia branch today at 10:30 a.m. or stop by one of our many baby, toddler, or children's story times throughout our system tomorrow or Wednesday! Check out the full list of events on our online calendar.
