LOST IN THE LIBRARY, by Josh Funk, is a beautiful picture book that tells the story of the two stone lions in front of the Stephen Schwarzman branch of the New York Public Library. The two stone statues are called “Patience” and “Fortitude”. One night, Patience goes missing, and Fortitude discerns that his best friend has gone into the huge library.
Available in our Monroe One SORA/Overdrive collection as an ebook, this story not only tells the reader about the history and collection inside of the flagship branch of the New York Public Library, it also conveys the importance of friends to each and every one of us.
A simple activity kit is available on Josh Funk’s website.
