The 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.)
