Celebrate Children’s Book Week, May 7-13!

Beginning in 1919, Children’s Book Week was established to promote children’s literacy as well as quality children’s books, supported by librarians, booksellers, and publishers. Every year young and old come together to engage in storytelling, author and illustrator visits, and events at schools, libraries, and bookstores across the country. For more information on events and the history of this celebration of children’s literacy, check out Book Week Online.

To celebrate this year’s Children’s Book Week (May 7-13) we’ll be featuring some of our favorite faculty and staff recommendations. Usually we feature a physical display, but this year we’re going to take a look back at some previous faculty and staff memories of their favorite books from when they were children. So keep an eye out this week as we’ll have two featured each day!
