Title: Trying 'em out for size

Woman standing at table around which ten children are seated in library of housing project (Glenwood Houses) at or near 1660 Ralph Avenue. Caption on verso: "Trying 'Em Out For Size: What was once a pipe-scarred and gloomy teachers' rest room for a nearby school annex has been transformed into a cheerful, well-lighted reading room, thanks to the combined efforts of the city project's management and the Glenwood Parents Organization. Showing a group of youngsters, above, how they'll be able to enjoy the new facility, come Thursday, is Mrs. Adele Beck of 5808 Farragut Road."
