Adorable Children in 1983 Talk About Their Favorite Books at the Cortelyou Library

These videos from the Cortelyou Library in 1983 (the year the branch opened) of kids sharing their favorite books are pretty amazing, but we’re hoping they can get more amazing – are any of you readers one of these kids? Or were/are they your friends?

They’re all pretty cute, but if for some crazy reason you can’t watch them all, be sure to at least watch the review of Chocolate Fever, which might be the most creative (and features the best accent and ’80s clothing).
