2012 - 2013 Exhibits

Children and Libraries Exhibit (April 2013)

For those who have early memories of visits to the library, it may come as a surprise to learn that allowing children in libraries is a relatively recent historical development. This exhibit celebrates the libraries and librarians who fought to open libraries to children. View the materials on display to explore the many ways librarians sought to create welcoming spaces containing age-appropriate materials available to children. This exhibit was created by Donna Turner, library Collection Maintenance/Preservation Specialist, for National Library Week and Children’s Book Week. (2nd floor)
