B is for Book: Children's Stories Through the Centuries (Exhibit)

The B is for Book exhibition features special collections of early works including alphabet and instructional books, magazines and Mother Goose editions, as well as the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen plus some Dr. Seuss classics! This new exhibit brings to life captivating works of imagination and presents the results of nearly four centuries of children’s book publishing.

From fables and fairytales, ABC and lesson books, to picture books, modern readers and beloved stories, children’s literature has evolved over the centuries to provide delight and inspiring life lessons for countless children. Hundreds of wonderful examples have been a part of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library’s collections since 1896 when the Buffalo Public Library opened one of the first reading rooms designed specifically for children.
