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.
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.
