LP Library News from Mrs. Russell

This week we are talking about the Caldecott Medal.  This book award is presented annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published that year. We will be comparing the illustrations in the very first book to win this award back in 1938, Animals of the Bible: A Picture Book by Dorothy Lathrop with the most recent recipient in 2017, Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat by Javaka Steptoe. Then we will be reviewing the nominees for the 2018 LP Mock Caldecott awards. Nominees are books that are in the current LP library collection for students to check out that were published in 2017. In the older grades we will also be reviewing the 2018 LP Mock Newbery nominees. LP Ballot voting will take place during library time the week of February 6th- 9th.  The 2018 Youth Media Awards, including the Caldecott and Newbery Medals, will be announced on Monday, February 12th.

Information About CYRM

The California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program encourages recreational reading of popular literature among the young people of our state. Since its inception in 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the California Young Reader Medal.

CYRM is supported by the California Reading Association, the California Association of Teachers of English, California Library Association, and the California School Library Association.

Young people recommend the titles of their favorite books for nomination, or teachers and librarians note repeatedly read or requested titles, and these are submitted to the California Young Reader Medal Committee. Members of the committee read the suggested books, discuss their merits and appeal to children, and then decide upon a well-balanced list of nominees.

To be considered for nomination, a book must be an original work of fiction published within the last four years by a living author. Recommendations for nomination are due each year by April 1 for consideration as a nominee the following year. It is a two-year cycle from the time of nomination by students to the presentation of the California Young Reader medal to the winning authors and illustrators.

OVERDUE BOOKS

There are no fines for overdue books; however, students must return overdue items before new items may be checked out. Students who have overdue books are able to read books in the library, but are unable to take them home. If a book is lost or damaged it is the responsibility of the student to replace the book.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Moraga School District School library program is to support students in becoming independent and effective users of all variety of information; to support teachers and the common core standards through collaboration; and to nurture a lifelong love of reading and learning.
