In the summer of 2000, sixteen fifth and sixth graders in a Brooklyn summer camp program worked with Groundswell and community partner, Warren Street Center, to create a mural on two adjacent walls of the library of a family health and day care center. The youth were faced with designing a collaborative mural that would enhance the library environment. The group explored all the amazing worlds that books open up as well as the wonderful spaces in which each liked to read. They came up with the title theme and decided to camouflage the theme throughout various environments where they read and where reading takes them. The title words are written in languages reflective of the Warren Street Center: Spanish, English, Chinese and Sign Language.
