THROUGH FEBRUARY 7 IN OUR GROUND FLOOR GALLERY: "One Hundred Books Famous in Children's Literature." Powerful narrative, unforgettable characters, illustration that stirs the imagination, and insights that engage the mind and heart – literature for children is forged from the same enduring elements as literature for adults. Children’s books with these qualities often shine for generations, with some achieving landmark fame; and a few such books ultimately go on to enter the canon of classics of children’s literature. The Grolier Club exhibition "One Hundred Books Famous in Children’s Literature" showcases one hundred books of this caliber, printed from 1600 to 2000. Some of the beloved books on view are Robinson Crusoe, Grimms’ Fairy Tales, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, Peter Rabbit, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Peter and Wendy, Winnie-the-Pooh, Charlotte’s Web, The Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, and Harry Potter. These classics and others – many famous today, some only in their time – will delight adults and children alike. See under "Children's Exhibition" in the navigation menu at left for more details, including press releases, images, catalogue ordering information, and schedules of public events planned in connection with this landmark "Grolier Hundred" exhibition.

Our galleries are open 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday.

THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE GROLIER CLUB AND GAZETTE OF THE GROLIER CLUB NOW DIGITIZED AND SEARCHABLE ONLINE. The Transactions of the Grolier Club (1885-1919), and its successor journal The Gazette of the Grolier Club (1921 to date), have documented the activities of America’s oldest and largest society of book lovers for over 130 years. Thanks to a generous grant from Pine Tree Foundation, a full run of The Transactions, and a run of The Gazette from its inception through 2009, have been digitized and made searchable online, free of charge, via New York Heritage, a research portal for students, educators, historians, genealogists, and others interested in learning about the people, places and institutions of New York State. The collection is available here
