The Libraries has many titles in its collections on Walt Disney. Books on his studio's feature films, the theme parks, biography, cartoons and animation, society and history, even African Art. A few titles below caught my eye, especially The Disneyization of society.
Mickey's creator Walter Elias (Walt) Disney was born today, in 1901.
