Hola a tod at s:

The REFORMA Oregon Chapter is organizing the 2nd Mock Pura Belpré Awards’ event which will take place on Saturday, December 10th from 10 to 4 at the Lebanon Public Library, 55 Academy Street, Lebanon, OR 97355.

We are looking forward to seeing you for this educational experience. In the morning we will have a panel presentation, “Your Patrons Need Diverse Books: Developing Latinx-Inclusive Library Collections,” by Elena Gleason, from Coos Bay Public Library, Katy Bogart from Garden Home Community Library and Lora Worden, from Catlin Gabel School in Portland.
The presentation will be followed by the selection of those titles which we consider outstanding in terms of text and illustrations.
In the next month or so, we will send more information, the criteria for selection, and the list of suggested titles.
In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer and the beginning of the fall. Thank you.
Nos vemos,
