Teaching and Learning

The Constantine Georgiou Library and Resource Center for Children and Literature is a home for research, scholarship, and community activities associated with children’s literature and literacy.

About the Library

Named to honor writer, scholar, and late NYU Steinhardt professor, Constantine Georgiou, the Center’s collection encourages New York City children and their parents to engage with books and develop a love of reading.

In supporting the literacy initiatives of the Department of Teaching and Learning and its faculty, the Center aims to make NYU a leader in getting books in the hands of children and promoting literacy skills in all children. 

The Georgiou Library is supported by the E.H.A. Foundation.  Read more.

For children, it is in their nature to stretch minds and horizons; to laugh and play; to seek aesthetic satisfaction through enjoyment of beauty; to sit in judgment of the past and envision the future...Literature for children adds immeasurably to the enrichment of life.
