|SCKLS Youth and School Book Award Workshop|
Event Type: Continuing Education|
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 1:00 PM
With so many book awards in children and teen literature combined with the increase in publishing and online book review opportunities, it can be challenging to keep track of award winners, their purposes, and how they can be used in libraries. The “Youth and School Book Awards Workshop” offers you the opportunity to learn about several key book awards and why they may be relevant to your library. Join SCKLS Youth and School Services Consultant Robin Hargrave and your library peers as we explore local, state, national, and international book awards. Time will also be devoted to discussing quality literature, engaging literature, and reading options for guiding readers along their journey to becoming lifelong readers. Book awards from preschool through young adult will be discussed. Kansas Book, American Library Association, Parents’ Choice and Missouri Building Block are among the award programs that will be covered.
Complimentary morning refreshments will be provided.
