Take Your Child to the Library Day is the brainchild of Nadine Lipman, retired head of children's services at Waterford Public Library, with the help of Caitlin Augusta from the Stratford Public Library, and the support of many others. Launched in 2012, it's grown to become a national initiative of the Connecticut Library Consortium.
