The USF St. Pete library has gone a little mad here. They collaborated with the USF Tampa Library Special Collections and The Dalí Museum to create an Alice in Wonderland Exhibition Extravaganza. The Dalí loaned the entire Alice Suite, consisting of 13 pieces. Dalí’s enchanting portrayals of characters like the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts have made this one of his most popular and well-known book illustrations.

Throughout the first floor of the library, there are a number of display cases with historic and modern editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, along with ephemera dating from the original publication, including a letter from Charles Dodgson, or more famously known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll.
