Children's Literature Collection

How You Can Help


Funded primarily through appropriations from the Mississippi legislature, the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection would not be able to carry out its mission of collecting, preserving and providing access to the best in children's literature year after year if it were not for the generosity of our contributors and donors, publishers and friends throughout the United States and the world.

Annually, we receive gifts of books, original materials, illustrations and monetary contributions from hundreds of indivduals and companies who feel, as we do, that preserving our history and culture through children's literature is a worthwhile endeavor.

Want to help us out? Check our Most Wanted List to see a current list of books we need for the Collection (updated monthly).

If you, or your company would like to join us in this important work, please contact Ellen Ruffin at 601-266-4349 or the University Foundation.

Thank you for your support!!
