About Anne Carroll Moore

Anne Carroll Moore was the head of the children's library at the New York City Library. She was also one of the pioneer advocates of children's literature. Through her efforts, children's reading rooms were beginning to become an important part of the public library.

In 1927, she was invited by USU President, E.G. Peterson, to come to Logan and lecture. She fell in love with Logan, and before returning to New York, she wrote to her publishing and author friends. She asked them to donate books for a children's collection on campus. One such author was Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss). The collection was named in her honor and opened in 1937.

 

The Library

Over time, the collection grew and moved from the campus library to EBLS in 1957. Today, the library carries on the same philosophy of offering the best in children's literature, as well as providing resources Anne never dreamed of, such as electronic databases and the Internet.

Through the generous patronage of the JR and Theresa Allred family, the library hosts an author visit each year. In 2009, EBLS was honored to have Brandon Mull (author of Fablehaven) visit.
