Forest Park Library

The Forest Park Library was located just a few blocks from Ted’s home on Fairfield Street. Ted loved books of all kinds, and he loved to visit both this branch library and the central library downtown. These libraries exposed the young Ted to the wonderful world of children’s literature and established a life-long appreciation for the ability of books to create a fascinating world of imagination.
