An Itsy Bitsy fact in honor of today’s Fifth Grade Walking Tour of Historical Newtown!

In 1911 the citizens of Newtown, PA broke ground on the site where The Newtown Library Company currently resides. The building opened for the public in 1912.

A popular children’s rhyme at that time was….

The Itsy Bitsy Spider!

(First published in a slightly different version in 1910 in Camp and Camino in Lower California.)
