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
