Sponsored by the UW-L School of Education and the Murphy Library Endowment Fund, the multicultural children's literature programs introduce the multicultural resources of Murphy Library and highlight its multicultural children's book collections to education students as well as teachers and librarians from school districts in the Coulee Region.
These programs are a unique hands-on experience. Participants can browse through the award-winning books on display, interact with the speaker, and network with other area teachers, librarians, and other educators. Bibliographies of recommended sources by the speaker are available on the day of the event or electronically.
