The Hudson Valley Library Association brings together librarians primarily from independent K-12 schools in the New York City, Long Island, Westchester and nearby New Jersey and Connecticut communities.
Thanks to everyone who attended our Winter Meeting, where we toured the NYPL exhibit The ABC of It: Why Children's Books Matter with curator and historian Leonard Marcus. Before the tour, we were given an insider's look into the exhibit with Mr. Marcus sharing with us how he chose the pieces for the exhibit and how they were laid out. Below are some pictures from his enlightening talk and the exhibit. If you haven't seen it yet, you definitely need to check it out. It's a beautiful testament to what we all know and appreciate about the wonders of children's literature.
