Posted Dec 16th, 2010 by Rhonda Sewell  Category: Arts & Entertainment,


(Released December 16, 2010) – Adults are invited to see the best picture books for children all in one place beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 8, 2011 in the Huntington Meeting Room at Main Library, 325 Michigan St.

Help us choose the local Caldecott winner while comparing favorites and meeting others interested in book design and stories for children.

The actual Caldecott winner is scheduled to be announced in late January 2011 at the American Library Association (ALA) mid-winter meeting in San Diego, CA.

This annual local Library event, now in its 37th year, is designed for adults interested in book design and stories for children.

The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. The ALA has awarded the medal 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 at Main Library. 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.

To request an interpreter for the hearing impaired, please call 419.259.5266 at least one week in advance.

NOTE: For additional information visit, or call Children’s Library at 419.259.5231 or our Library Info Line at 419.259.5207.
