November 8 is Library Day at the Contemporary Jewish Museum

On November 8, 2009, between 11am and 5pm all San Francisco Public Library library card holders get free admission. Just show your library card and enjoy the exhibitions including There’s a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak, a major retrospective of more than 100 works by Maurice Sendak, the famed author and illustrator who changed the course of children’s literature forever with his 1963 classic, Where the Wild Things Are.

Throughout the day there will be readings of favorite Sendak books by children’s librarians. In addition, visitors can participate in drop-in art-making—celebrating Maurice Sendak’s Nutshell Library—by creating miniature books, from 1 to 3 p.m.
