Dr. Michael Levy began teaching English at UW-Stout in 1980, remaining here his entire career. He assembled a collection of children’s books to share with his colleagues, their families, and the community. In 2017, the English and Philosophy Department voted to name the library he worked so hard to create the Michael M. Levy Children’s Literature Library.
Every day, Mike shared his unending kindness, good humor, and wisdom with his colleagues and students. Now, we are honored to share a bit of that playfulness and knowledge with you.
Come visit us. We are located in Harvey Hall, Room 373L, and are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
The beauty and simplicity of our library.
Mike's legacy is a gift to our students, faculty, and community, offering a quiet space to gather your thoughts and explore the boundless universe of children's literature. The library is ready to teach when you are ready to learn.
You are welcome to sign out books on the honor system and visit our mini-exhibits. The current exhibits are called "3x3x3". They showcase three objects belonging to three people for three weeks, offering public recognition to the works and belongings of our students and faculty.
