Happy Birthday, Mary Cassatt!

You may have noticed that the search engine, Google, changes its plain old home page logo from time to time. Today, to celebrate the painter Mary Cassatt's birthday, Google's logo incorporates the beloved American Impressionist's painting of a mother bathing her child (La Toilette, 1891.) Click on the logo to find links to websites about Cassatt.

The Berkeley Heights Public Library has a large collection of art books which are housed behind the Circulation Desk. A catalog search of Cassatt shows that the library has about eighteen books and other materials on the painter. The library subscribes to American National Biography online which has a lengthy biography of Cassatt. To view the ANB and other library databases, click on "Remote Databases" from the library home page.
