Luna Loves Library Day - creating covers activity sheet


“Libraries are more than the buildings or the people or books within them, they are gateways into reading, into writing, into discovering a world beyond that in which we find ourselves. Luna Loves Library Day was inspired by this magic, this vital ability to inspire children, shore up families and heal communities”Joseph Coehlo
