Not Captain Nemo, You Twits. The Original.

The Virginia Quarterly Review has made an essay regarding the amazing Windsor McCay available online. In a perfect world, all libraries would be full to overflowing with Little Nemo collections. I recently helped put together an exhibit of treasures from the Donnell Central Children's Room and had to fight very hard with myself not to put on display a crumbling, yellowing, old-timey collection of Nemo comics that was calling out to me. It would've killed the poor little thing but it took all my resolve to leave it lying in our Old Book Room. Gotta love that McCay.

Will there be any exhibits in the beginning of July? I'm bringing my book-loving kids to NYC for our vacation and would love to stop by.

Oh yes. But it's a little odd. We're doing a gigantic, huge, has-nothing-to-do-with-children's-literature exhibit from June 8 - September 6 of... Gumby. Gumby at 60 is the title. Should be interesting, but even if you aren't a fan (now that was a show that freaked ME out) we still have the original Winnie-the-Pooh under glass. And all his friends, for that matter.
