Books Fall Open, You Fall In

Librarians are multi-talented people, and the staff of the Santa Clara City Library is no exception! This beautiful quilt, designed and handcrafted by staff members Ellin Klor, Mary Boyle and Angie Vincenti, was unveiled recently in the library's picture book area. Named "Books Fall Open, You Fall In," this labor of love features covers of many classic children's favorites such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Olivia and Goodnight Moon. The setting of each book cover block is called "Twist and Turn," because the triangles sewn around the book covers make them turn in different directions and give the quilt a sense of movement.

Ask your children if they recognize the covers of each of the books represented. The youth services staff can help you locate all of these beloved titles.
