The Martha King Seminar Room, 200 Ramseyer Hall, houses three collections:
Bonnie Chambers Children’s Literature Collection and Teaching Resource
The Bonnie Chambers Children’s Literature Collection and Teaching Resource is displayed on open shelves in the Martha King Seminar Room. The late Dr. Bonnie Chambers, a professor at Bowling Green State University and a Ph.D. graduate of the former Language, Literature, and Reading program at Ohio State, bequeathed her large collection of children’s books to the Center. She was a discriminating collector who selected books of high quality with many possibilities for classroom application, some of which are reflected in shelving categories such as “Transitional Readers,” “Wordless Books,” and “Writers and Writing.” Her passion for poetry and for the art of the picturebook are likewise represented by an ample number of critically acclaimed titles in both areas.
Resources are listed in the Martha King Center Resources Index. Please click below link to view current index of Bonnie Chambers Children’s Literature Collection and Teaching Resource in PDF format.
Academic books concerned with issues of language and literacies are added annually to a collection of contemporary and historical books.
Martha L. King Book Collection of Language and Literacies
Donated by Dr. Martha L. King, this collection includes categories such as Child Development and Learning, Early Literacy, Reading, Writing & Spelling, Informal Education, Literary criticism, and children’s literature.
