Keeping up with our #Newbery100 celebration, here are upcoming #Newbery100 happenings you won’t want to miss!
- Webinar on September 28, Problematic Award-Winning Texts: Daniel Boone, the Newbery Award, and Children’s Librarianship: This webinar will feature an incredible panel of ALSC members and is open to all. In case you miss it live, the recording will be available to view on-demand through June 2022. Over 230 attendees have registered thus far!
- Newbery 100 Symposium on November 5: This full-day Symposium includes a lot of opportunities to learn about the history of the Newbery and its impact on children’s literature. The recordings of the symposium sessions will also be available on The Center for Children’s Books website after the live date.
- Our Spring 2022 issue of Children & Libraries will be a very special Newbery issue! ALSC members can be on the lookout for this in March.
While the virtual engagement opportunities are “free” for all to attend live, costs and staff time (and love!) still go into developing, promoting, and hosting them. Our Budget Committee’s recent infographic offers a visual overview of how ALSC is funded and how funding is allocated.
An engaged membership and a big family of generous donors allows for our organization to continue to develop and provide open access to discussions and resources that have a positive impact on library service to children. We look forward to doing more, together!
