Children's Literature Collection


Some of you may have noticed a change in the Juvenile Miscellany masthead. The charming design of a little girl and her cat is the work of children's book illustrator Pamela R. Levy. Look for this new logo on all of our print and electronic publications.


We are pleased to welcome Ann Ashmore to the staff of the de Grummond Collection. Ann has a master's in public health and a certificate in library technical services. Ann has worked at libraries in Connecticut and Mississippi and was a historical interpreter at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Mystic, Connecticut. In addition to library work, Ann has extensive experience in hospitals and health planning systems, and has done extensive consulting and training in community health services.

Ann replaces Mary Hamilton, who served as the de Grummond Collection Specialist for three years. Mary received her master's in library science in May 1999, and her considerable talents secured her a professional position as Electronic Services Librarian in our main library. We wish Mary the best of everything in her new endeavors.


We were very pleased to have an article on the de Grummond Collection appear in the Sunday New York Times, on July 25, 1999. The article is by David Galef, a novelist and children's book author who teaches English at the University of Mississippi. If you can't locate a copy of the article, please contact us, and we'll fax or mail a copy to you.
