Printer out of order

The IRC printer is currently out of order; there is no printing available on the library, second floor.

A help ticket has been submitted.

Mock Caldecott Panel

Dr. Mary Rycik's children's literature class held a Mock Caldecott Award panel session this morning in the library. Criteria and terms followed were those used by the American Library Association (ALA) division, Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC).


Eighteen titles were considered as possible contenders for the award. Groups of four panels narrowed the original field to five titles; one book was selected the winner and two others (tied)awarded honor distinction. The winning title was Catching the Moon, illustrated by Chris Sheban and written by Myla Goldberg.

More information on other books discussed, as well as past Mock Caldecott panel resources, are available on the IRC: Mock Caldecott Award web page.
