Children’s Librarians & Children’s Authors — Elva Smith

Storypockets looks at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s rich tradition of author-librarians . Our previous installments featured Sorche Nic Leodhas and Laura Cathon. This week, we focus on Elva Smith.

Elva Smith (1871-1965) “was a prolific writer of stories, poems, history, and legends for children, articles for journals, and guides for librarians.” (Contemporary Authors.) She was a children’s librarian, cataloger, and Professor of Children’s Services at Carnegie Library School.
