News item published on: 2011-10-28 10:20:21

The de Grummond Children's Literature Collection will be hosting the 24th Annual Holiday Book Preview on Sunday, November 6 from 1 to 5 p.m. and Monday, November 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. The Holiday Book Preview will be located in the de Grummond Exhibit Room on the second floor of the Cook Library and will include several hundred titles of the latest children's literature publications. This year's preview will also display various teaching materials that are designed to assist elementary school teachers as well as 2011 catalogs from participating publishers. All visitors will receive a book list with publication and ordering information.

The Holiday Book Preview provides an opportunity for parents, teachers and librarians to examine the latest books available for children. Because we want to stress the importance of buying books for children as gifts, this event is a browsing book preview where we display a variety of books, especially those that may be unknown to the general public, and are appropriate for holiday giving.
