Please join us for this popular hands-on in-person event.

Register for one session at the time that is best for you. Note: Friday's workshop will include an additional afternoon training session focused on intellectual freedom and materials challenges.

Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) librarians will talk about great new books for children and teens, highlighting selected titles from the CCBC Choices 2024 list. Books published in 2023 that are included in CCBC Choices 2024 will be available for hands-on examination. The list will not be distributed in print format; instead, you may download CCBC Choices 2024 as a PDF (coming in 2024!).
