End To Big Little Book Story

On August 18th, I received the following letter:

Dear Mr.Gay,

On behalf of the Rare Book Collection of the Academic Affairs Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I would like to gratefully acknowledge receipt of the gift of your collection of Big Little Books. We are delighted to receive this fascinating collection, which will enhance our holdings in the history of the book and be a rich source of material for students of Americana and popular culture. We will place in each volume a bookplate identifying it as your gift, and we enclose a complete list for your records.

Again, let me express my appreciation for your very thoughtful generosity. We rely heavily on gifts such as yours for the continuing growth of our collections, and I can assure you that future generations of students and scholars will be in your debt.

Sincerely yours,

Charles B. McNamara Curator of Rare Books

I told you previously the books have found a good home and they have.
