New Exhibit in Seymour Library

Child’s Play! Celebrating the art of Children’s Literature in the Campbell Collection

Come celebrate the art of Children’s Literature in this exhibit in the Henry Seymour Library. The John D. & Nelle Laughlin Campbell Fund for Children's Literature was established in 2002 by Donald Campbell and Ellen Campbell Pskowski to develop a collection of children’s literature for Knox College’s Seymour Library. Part of the collection is housed in the Special Collections and Archives and is rarely exhibited.

This exhibit features seventeen of our special children’s books and the art of the illustrations. Featuring old favorites, and perhaps some books you may have never heard of, the exhibit gives viewers a unique insight into these books and into the collection as a whole.

Students completing a special project within the Campbell Collection have curated the exhibit along with Assistant Librarian, Rebecca Yowler. The students are: Maddie Schacht, Savannah Sailors, and Connie Meade.

The exhibit opens on Friday, February 15, 2019 and is located in the exhibit area on the second floor of the Seymour Library.
