I was in a primary school the other day and found myself in a classroom where the teacher was supervising a library period. Some of the children were absorbed in reading, others were busily engaged in consulting books piled around them, and taking notes. So engrossed were they that I felt it almost an unwarranted intrusion to bid them “Good morning”. The teacher explained that the children taking notes were preparing articles for their class magazine—on subjects as diverse as “The Earth and the Moon”, “Adventure in the Amazon”, “I was a Racing Driver”, “A Night Hunter of the Sea Bed”—and that their researches took them regularly to the public library.
