The Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library (SSHEL) is pleased to present an exhibit in celebration of the biennial Youth Literature Festival. This display, featuring the themes and books of the 17 authors and illustrators who will participate in the event, honors the use of youth literature as a powerful tool for education and recognizes the importance of reading in development.
The month-long exhibit is located in the North-South Corridor, Marshall Gallery, and SSHEL North and South in the Main Library building, 1408 W. Gregory Drive, Urbana.
