About the Event

Join us at the Civic Center Public Gallery for an open house reception to celebrate the new exhibition Pictures Tell Stories: Children’s Book Illustrations. The gallery is located inside the Scottsdale Civic Center Library near the reading area. 

Cathy Bonnell and Mary J. Wong are both retired librarians who believe in the power of stories and pictures. They have hundreds of original artworks from illustrators of children’s literature in their collections. Wong and Bonnell have befriended hundreds of authors and illustrators of children’s books, collecting their original artworks and first edition books. It is an honor to share their enthusiasm with this exhibition of original children’s book illustrations.  

Pictures Tell Stories: Children’s Book Illustrations is on view through September 20, 2021. Click here for library hours.
