For many Oregon library staff, OLA Children's Services Division's annual
Mock Caldecott Workshop is a favorite professional learning opportunity.
See what ALA's Association for Library Service to Children has planned to
celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Caldecott medal!

  ALSC members,****

It's time to celebrate 75 years of distinguished picture books!

The Caldecott Medal was established in 1937, and first awarded in 1938.
 Now, in 2012 through 2013, the Caldecott 75th Anniversary Task Force has
prepared a slew of special Caldecott-related events and activities to
include everyone in the celebration.  But we're counting on all of you to
help spread the word.

An outline of activities can be found at http://www.ala.org/alsc/Caldecott75
, and includes a series of webinars, starting on Tuesday May 8th with
Uncovered: What You’ve Always Wanted to Know About the Caldecott
  <http://www.ala.org/alsc/caldecott-uncovered>*with Rita Auerbach (sign up
before it fills up!); a special Breakfast for Bill Program at the *ALSC
National Institute
Caldecott-honored illustrators Kevin Henkes, Denise Fleming and
Eric Rohman; an online gallery, a special issue of Children & Libraries
magazine, and more!  The celebration will culminate at the ALA Annual
Conference in 2013, including a preconference devoted to the Caldecott.
Make sure to follow the ALSC blog <http://www.alsc.ala.org/blog/> and
updates as our celebration unfolds.

We’re hoping to enlist all of you to spread news of the celebration far and
wide.  In spirit, the Caldecott Medal belongs to more than just ALSC.   Are
you a member of AASL, IRA, NCTE, or other professional organizations that
might be interested in knowing about the anniversary, and holding their own
programs or campaigns to celebrate the award?   Please contact me with your
ideas, and please share announcements of the celebration with your local
colleagues and community. ****

Looking forward to seeing you online and in person at one of these many
