The crowd gathered in a courtyard inside one of Fullerton's oldest buildings. The barbecue grill was set up under a fig tree that's seen more than 100 summers. One of the top organizers has celebrated 88 birthdays. It was a charity event, but it also turned out to be a nice little nod to local history.

Sure, there's Kukla, Fran and Ollie; Hopalong; Annette, and the Beav. If you're a baby boomer, those names are guaranteed to conjure up pleas ant childhood memories. Then there's Dick and Jane. Nothing quite evokes those simple, carefree days of youth as much as the young brother and sister who helped teach several generations of Americans to read. Brown-haired Dick, the older brother, often wore short pants and a striped T-shirt.

Regarding the concern expressed by T.A. Peterson (Orange County Voices, Jan. 19): The Fullerton Public Library has access to a vast system of loans of resources from other libraries, as well as a fine reference and information service. It maintains a number of special collections (the Mary Campbell Collection of Historical Children's Books, and the Launer Local History Room, to name just two), but it is basically a circulating library. The circulating collection is regularly assessed, thanks now to the availability of computerized circulation records.

A design for expanding the children's section of the Fullerton Public Library has been approved by the City Council, with fund-raising efforts to pay for the $1.12-million project already underway. The design calls for increasing the section about 40% by taking over a portion of the library's gallery space and enclosing a patio. Library officials said the expansion is needed. The children's section, which is about 540 square feet, gets the most use.
