Hi gang,

 

I am thrilled to announce a fantastic set of workshops sponsored in part
by the Children's Services Division of the Oregon Library Association:

 

This year, you can attend both the Mock Newbery and the Mock Caldecott
Workshops in the same weekend (Friday December 10th - Saturday 11th)!!

 

The Mock Newbery Workshop is presented by CSD, the Children and Young
Adult Services (CAYAS) Interest Group of WLA, and the Fort Vancouver
Regional Library!  Here are the particulars:

 

Date/Time: Friday December 10, 2010 / 10 am - 4 pm

Location: Cascade Park Library / 600 NE 136th Ave, Vancouver, WA

Cost: $15 / pays for snacks and a lunch from Applewood Restaurant

 

Sign up quick, to ensure that you're able to take part in what promises
to be a super-fun workshop.  Registration may be limited.

 

Join library staff and educators from around Oregon and Washington for a
fun and thought provoking look at the Newbery medal.  Get a firsthand
peek into the ALA Newbery Committee experience courtesy of 2010
committee member Steven Engelfried.  In addition, school and public
librarians who have run successful Newbery book groups will share tips
for engaging kids in Mock Newbery discussions.  The experience will
culminate in a lively discussion of several of the best books of 2010,
resulting in a vote for the OLA/WLA Mock Newbery winner!

 

 

The Mock Caldecott Workshop is presented by CSD, the Children and Young
Adult Services (CAYAS) Interest Group of WLA, and the Multnomah County
Library!  Here are the particulars:

 

Date/Time: Saturday December 11, 2010 / 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Location: Central Library / 801 SW 10th Ave, Portland, OR

Cost: $15 / pays for snacks and a lunch from Elephants Delicatessen

 

Sign up quick, to ensure that you're able to take part in what promises
to be a super-fun workshop.  Registration may be limited.

 

Join library staff, educators, and children's book enthusiasts from
around Oregon and Washington for a fun and fruitful discussion of the
best picture books of 2010!  Speaker Suzanne Harold will review her year
on the 2010 Caldecott Committee and help participants to learn more
about the graphic elements in picture book illustrations as attendees
closely examine a 2010 Caldecott Award book.  Barbara Head will orient
attendees to Visual Thinking Strategies, a method of inquiry for looking
at picture books.  Participants will read a book using this technique
before discussing a series of potential 2011 award books.

 

Both Harold and Head are youth librarians with Multnomah County Library.

 

A brand new Steven Engelfried-designed Caldecott quiz will be available
for participants to test their Caldecott knowledge, with a chance to win
a great prize!
