The CCBC is always happy to host public and school librarians for hands-on book examination here at the library, but here are several upcoming opportunities we want you to know about:
1)CCBC at WLA: We will be bringing all of the 2015 books we’ve received to-date that have gotten a starred review in one or more professional journal to the CCBC/YSS booth at the WLA Exhibit Hall on Wednesday and Thursday, November 4 and 5, in Middleton. (Booth numbers 510 and 512). (Thank you to the Youth Services Section of WLA for underwriting the booth costs!). We’ll also have a preview of the CCBC Choices 2016* list with books on display!
2)Starred Review Display at the CCBC: We will set up the starred review books for easy browsing in the CCBC conference room on Monday and Tuesday, November 15 and 16. (CCBC location and parking information: http://ccbc.education.wisc.edu/about/location.asp)
3)CCBC Choices 2016* Preview for the Milwaukee County Library System on Thursday, November 12, 1-5:30 p.m. http://ccbc.education.wisc.edu/events/default.asp?eventDate=11/12/2015
*If you’re not a member of the Friends of the CCBC, ask about the Friends special incentive to join when you’re at a CCBC event or here at the CCBC. The Friends underwrite the complete production and printing costs of CCBC Choices so it can be made available at no charge to here in Wisconsin. If you value the Choices print publication, consider joining the Friends to help support their work.
