Children's Book Preview Sponsored by the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection

News item published on: 2009-11-03 07:52:58

The de Grummond Children's Literature Collection invites you to take a sneak peek at what's new in children's literature. Each year at the Book Preview, the de Grummond Collection displays hundreds of newly released and upcoming titles for the public to browse. There is no pressure to buy because many of these books are not yet available for sale. This is a great opportunity for teachers and librarians to get ideas for book selections for their classrooms and general collection development. It is also an opportunity for parents to get ideas for books to purchase for holiday gift giving. All visitors will receive a book list with publication and ordering information.

This year's event will be held in the de Grummond exhibit room on the second floor of Cook Library on Sunday, Nov. 15, 1 - 5 p.m., and Monday, Nov. 16, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
