A Set of World Encyclopedia

The Future Librarian

When I was in Kindergarten (and earlier) my favorite books in our house were a burgundy bound set of World Book Encyclopedias.  They sat in our living room on a mission shelf made by my father and one of my brothers.  It was an adventure!

I loved the photos, the drawings, the maps, the charts, and the overlays.  I looked and learned.  To this day, those remain my favorite reference works.  They addressed not only the immediate information need, but lured you on to learn more and more.

Watch a video about the history of this encyclopedia.
