Mary Poppins Display Opens at The New York Public Library

By Maryann Yin 

Mary Poppins (GalleyCat)“Chim, chimney, chim, chimney, chim, chim, cher-ee!” A display of rare Mary Poppins-related items has opened at the New York Public Library.

This character stars in an eight-book series by writer and actress P.L. Travers (with artwork by artist Mary Shepard). Some of the pieces on display include Travers’ umbrella, a Dutch wooden doll that served as a model for the book illustrations, and an “N is for Nursery” pen and ink drawing.

Visitors will be able to find this program at the children’s room of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. This display will be on view until the Fall time.
