The trip to the library was a bit more challenging than I'd hoped. The core of the problem was that it was raining. The subway ride had all the challenges one would expect when travelling with a baby and stroller (not to mention a kindergartner and a preschooler...oh, and two adults with little experience riding the NYC subway). Still, we managed. Bundled in our rain gear, we walked from Grand Central Station to the New York City Public Library. (On a side note, we've been reading A Cricket in Time Square which mentions Grand Central Station, so it was a bonus to visit this station).
When we arrived at the library, we spotted those two great stone lions outside. I had hoped to get a picture of the girls with Patience and Fortitude (the names of the two stone lions), but the rain made it impossible. So, we headed inside for the real reason we were there.
The Children's Room is on the bottom floor of the library. We went directly there and found the Winnie the Pooh display inside. What a treat to see these literary treasures.
Our visit to the New York City Public Library turned out to be more fun than we had imagined. It was also the perfect prelude to our next outing...Eloise Tea at The Plaza, which I will talk about in my next post.
