I Visit the Garden City Public Library

The Garden City Public Library’s Children’s Department has created a social storybook for children with autism, which features a wizard doll visiting the Library.  The book was created and designed by the Library’s Children’s Department with funds from the federal Library Services & Technology Act, awarded to the New York State Library by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.  A hardcopy of the book is also available in the Children’s Room office to check out or view at the Library.
