Children's Collection expands

TWU is already known as being tops for students who are parents. A new children’s collection space in the Blagg-Huey Library further demonstrates how Texas Woman’s provides extra services for the youth who visit our Denton campus.

Former TWU Chancellor Ann Stuart, PhD, has sponsored a new addition to the university’s historic children’s collection, which is showcased on the first floor of the library. The space is welcoming for families, with child-sized furniture and floor seating, surrounded by a display of items donated by Stuart as well as framed pieces of TWU’s famed original children’s book illustrations collection, donated to the university in 1990 by Clarabel Tanner.

TWU celebrated the opening of the Ann Stuart Children’s Collection in the library on Tuesday, Feb. 22. At the event, Stuart remarked, “This space is special to me. I am particularly moved when reading events occur with pillows on the floor, children sitting around on them and an adult reading aloud to the group. It is magical for me and brings back memories of my mother reading to me.”

TWU students, faculty and staff are invited to check out this special space. The collection can be found on the first floor of the Blagg-Huey Library, past the registration desk on the left, and back behind the shelving.
