iglooregThe Penrose Library Children’s Department has built a new attraction for young readers. Come and read your favorite book in our ‘cool’ igloo made from recycled plastic milk jugs! Nearly 300 milk jugs were used to construct the igloo, and it’s still growing! Here are some directions in case you and your family or class would like to build your own reading igloo!
Don’t worry, you won’t have to bundle up to enjoy our igloo; it’s a warm and cozy place to relax with a book. Come check it out today!

(Igloo means ‘snow house’ in the Inuit language. The Inuit people, also called Eskimo, live in the Arctic regions of Canada, Denmark, Russia, and the United States. Traditionally, igloos were made of snow, sod, and stone.)

    Admiring the dedication you put into your site and detailed information you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
