Maps in the Children's Room

November 18, 2013

2 maps from the Leventhal Map Center collection are currently on display in the Children’s Room at the Central Library:

In honor of Geography Awareness Week (November 18-22), a large reproduction of the What’s Up? South! has a place of honor. Children and families have the chance to get up close and personal with this great map that plays with our ideas of perspective.

Also, as November is Native American Heritage Month, a tribal nations map, Native American Nations, Our Own Names and Locations (2013) is featured along with a selection of children’s books on Native American history.
