Maisy's plan to have a quiet read is put to the challenge by her giggling friends in this picture book ode to the pleasures of the local library.

Maisy likes going to the library.
She loves to read a book in a nice, quiet place.

Today, Maisy wants to read a book about fish, but she can only find books about birds or tigers. So she explores some of the other things to do in the library, like using the computer, making copies, listening to music, or looking at fish in the aquarium. Aha! Finally Maisy finds a sparkly book all about fish. But just as she settles into a corner to read, along come Cyril, Tallulah, Eddie, and Ostrich — and they all have noisier activities on their minds!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Favorite characters and critters return in force! The lovable mouse and her entourage are back-in search of books, information and more-in Maisy Goes to the Library by Lucy Cousins. Maisy is only too happy to give up her "quiet corner" for storytime; the tale even inspires an improvised game. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Maisy loves to go to the library. She likes to find a good book about an interesting topic and read it in a comfortable, quiet place. Today, Maisy finds a book about fish. Then, she finds a quiet corner in which to read it. Unfortunately, the librarian has chosen the same location for story time. It is not such a quiet corner anymore. All of Maisy's friends are there, and everyone is laughing at the read-aloud story—even Maisy. Next, it is off to the park. Everyone is playing . . . but where is Maisy? Children are sure to enjoy this story in which things do not turn out as planned, but do turn out quite nicely. 2005, Candlewick, Ages 2 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Maisy travels to her local library to find a book about fish and a quiet reading nook. During her search, the mouse sees other animals using the computer, making copies, and listening to music. While looking at the aquarium, she locates the book she was hoping to find. Just when Maisy is ready to settle down to read, her friends arrive for storyhour. This simple book presents the library as a fun, child-friendly place. Colorful illustrations and a familiar setting make it appropriate for early childhood programs as well as for one-on-one reading.-Kristen M.

Kirkus Reviews
Cousins's beloved pink-nosed mouse develops a literary bent in this latest offering in the popular series. Maisy introduces young readers to the many wonders waiting to be discovered in the local public library. In her quest to locate a story about fish, Maisy explores the variety of books as well as the special services provided by libraries, such as computers, copiers and music. Cousins includes typical Maisy capers to keep the youngest readers giggling throughout. When Maisy's friends join her at the library, noisy adventures ensue and the young mouse finds it difficult to find a quiet reading place. By tale's end Maisy has her special spot-outside-and readers have learned about all the fun they can enjoy inside. The vivid colors coupled with simple line drawings of the engaging characters are designed to capture a toddler's eye, offering old friends and newcomers something to check out. (Picture book. 2-5)
