 We need Books Too

A quilt advisory committee and the Concerned Citizens of Northeast Greensboro planned this quilt project that included everyone in the community, especially the children. From September 12 through November 8, 2005, more than 40 children of the McGirt-Horton community participated in original story writing and the creation of a story quilt. The quilt represents ideas from the committees and the children’s own input. The result would the importance of the library in the community. The final project, led by Susie Wilde and Peg Gignoux, evolved into a beautiful three-panel tapestry called We Need Books Too. Pop-up books were also made by the children to express their experiences and feelings for the project. Children are also seen in a photo exhibit that showcases the cooperative process.
