Dozens of 17th- to 19th-century children’s ‘play-things’ — including toys, games and books once owned by busy, active children — are on display through June 3 in the University Libraries’ Special Collections Library, first floor Paterno Library, University Park. A complementary website, Learning as Play, is at http://sites.psu.edu/play.
