This informational picture book explains a lot of things about the library and the people we can meet there.
- Book Intro
An Alien Goes to the Library is a picture book that tells about various events that happen in the library and introduces those who work and visit there. By observing library visitors, readers can easily get information about the library. The aim is to show that the library is not just "a place," but "a human-centric space," where people can gather, do some activities, and move around.
