• Short Summary

    Children at the St Pancras Borough Council Children's Corner Library read and do homework.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CHILDREN'S CORNER".

    London.

    Various shots of children visiting the St Pancras Borough Council Children's Corner in Highgate. Inside is a library where children have to show their hands are clean before they are allowed in.

    Various good shots of children reading books together and alone. Others do homework in a special room. The children leave the books lying around on tables when they leave. A librarian (good, stereotypical lady librarian) makes a note of which books have been read, to give a record of children's reading habits. She puts the books back on the shelves.
