A new exhibit, Somebody Come and Play, celebrating Sesame Street's 45th anniversary opened its doors last night at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.


IICF serves as the major supporter of the exhibit through a unique partner grant from the IICF National Board of Governors and the Northeast Division. In addition to Sesame displays on Sesame history, music and inspiration, the IICF Early Literacy Initiative program, "Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day" materials are featured. The exhibit will run through January 31, 2015 and is expected to draw in more than 60,000 attendees.

We invite you to share this fun exhibit with your colleagues, associate and friends. Should you be in New York, be sure to stop by and take tour. More Information
