I Like the Library - by Anne Rockwell

The publication date on this book about a child visiting the library is 1977. The illustrations have a nice '70s vibe to them - teens wear cool striped pants and flowered skirts, and there is a clear attempt at including diverse people in the library, including a male children's librarian.

Other telltale '70s details include the viewing a filmstrip and listening to a cassette, selection of a record to play on a "phonograph player" at hom,e and the use of  book record cards.

The unnamed narrator is working on learning to write his name so he can get his own library card.
