The 2017 (Andrew) Carnegie Notable Children’s Videos Committee, chaired by Joanna Fabicon, will be discussing more than 20 DVDs published in 2016 and invite you to listen in. This committee is tasked with two functions: first, to select the most distinguished American Video (DVD) for children; and second, to select and annotate a list of notable videos of interest to children.
Every year, the ALSC office receives almost 3,000 newly published books, videos, audio books, and recordings from children’s trade publishers. The materials are primarily for children age birth through fourteen and are submitted to ALSC award and media evaluation selection committees for award and notables consideration. After each ALA Midwinter Meeting in January, these materials (published in the preceding year) need to be removed from the ALSC office to make room for a new year of publications.
