Worlds of Wonder: Minnesota Children's Books

By: Lori Williamson | Collections Up Close | April 3, 2018

Visit the new Library Lobby exhibit Worlds of Wonder: Minnesota Children's Books, on view during Library hours now until mid- May. 

From the Gag sisters to boys' adventure stories to Bink & Gollie, Minnesota's tradition of producing quality children's literature is worth celebrating. This is just the tip of the iceberg; play around on the Library catalog or ask a friendly librarian if you'd like to see more from our collection!
