Library News: Caldecott Adult Read-In on Jan. 17
Help choose the local Caldecott winner and see how the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library’s selection compares with the actual Caldecott winner scheduled to be announced in late January, 2009 at the American Library Association (ALA) mid-winter conference in Denver.
This annual local Library event, in its 36th year, is designed for adults interested in book design and stories for children. The Read-In is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2009 in the Huntington Meeting Room at Main Library, 325 Michigan St., in downtown Toledo.
See the best in children’s picture books from 2008 all in one location! Come out to compare favorites with other adults. The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. The ALA has awarded it annually since 1938 through its Association for Library Service to Children to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.
A potluck lunch is planned. Participants are encouraged to bring a salad or dessert to share, and your own table service. Beverages will be provided. Complimentary underground parking – enter off Adams Street.
The event is sponsored by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library and The Reading Railroad: A Children’s Bookstore.
