Hosting a Mock Newberry @ your Library

Every year you wait anxiously for that magic moment when you hear, "The winner of this year's Newbery Award is…" This year, let the kids at your library decide who they think the winner of the Newbery Award might be! Join librarians Kiera Parrott and Anna McKay as they discuss the details of hosting a mock Newbery program, from how to provide a reading list to leading discussions about the books.

Each one hour session gives students the opportunity to discuss hot library topics with ALSC members across the country without having to leave home. Everyone is welcome to attend.
