This series of Texas News reports from 1967 documents the opening of four Fort Worth Library branches: South (now known as Seminary South), West (now known as Ridglea), Southeast (now known as East Berry), and Northeast (now known as Riverside). For the first three ceremonies, the respective libraries adopt a literary theme, inviting visitors to step inside a particular book. The South Branch selects Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, the West Branch Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, and the Southeast Branch Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers. The Northeast Branch, on the other hand, picks a general carnival theme for its opening.
