Celebrate with us April 30-May 6!
As part of the longest-running national celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading, over 750 schools, libraries, and bookstores will celebrate Children’s Book Week from April 30 to May 6 from coast to coast in all 50 states.
This May marks the 99th anniversary of Children’s Book Week. The theme for this year’s celebration is “One World, Many Stories.”
Voting for the 11th Annual Children’s & Teen Choice Book Awards, the only national book award voted on solely by kids and teens, is now in progress and will continue until May 11, 12:00 a.m. EST. Kids and teens have been voting online at EveryChildaReader.net/vote, and the winners will be announced live on May 30 in New York City at BookExpo.
We are proud to be hosting a variety of programs in celebration of Children’s Book Week. Programs include storytimes, drop-in arts & craft programs, and family night events. Check out the BPL Calendar of Events for a complete listing of activities.
