Wood Collection of Children’s Books

The Wood Collection of children’s books is a legacy of Macalester’s relationship with the Miss Wood’s Kindergarten-Primary Teacher Training School from 1948 through 1978.

Located on the second floor of the Library, the collection includes Caldecott and Newberry Medal winners, as well as a wide selection of other children’s book titles.  Wood Collection books can be checked out.
