Great news from Great Websites!

Great news from Great Websites for Kids Committee

We’ve got new winners and a new name!

To demonstrate its continuing commitment to the librarian’s role as a media mentor and its responsiveness to committee concerns, the ALSC Board has changed the name and charge of our committee to:

Notable Children’s Digital Media Committee
Charge: To evaluate, select, annotate and present a list of notable digital media of interest to children which is updated on a continual basis. 
We are excited about the change and look forward to working with partner committees as we transition with the  assistance of the Digital Media Awards Implementation Task Force.  These are exciting and changing times!  With new committee appointments coming up soon, please consider requesting a spot on our virtual committee when you fill out your ALSC Volunteer Form (it’s now online).


In the meantime, on behalf of the committee, I’d like to announce the latest additions to the Great Websites for Kids online searchable database.
Congratulations to the creators of the following websites:

    This is a great resource–thanks for the links to the different websites! Even though I’m past having small children in my house, I will make a point to pass this info on to other parents and teachers who have– or work with–younger children. I appreciate the work that you all have done!
