Vintage Children's Library Bindings

These are actual old ex-library books from schools with the original text, stickers, markings, pockets, etc. inside. (Not to be confused with our recycled journals.) Wonderful graphic covers, and the smell of library paste will make you feel like a librarian is whispering, "Shhh," as you read.
