About meThe Children's Book Council, established in 1945, is the non-profit trade association of publishers and packagers of trade books and related materials for children and young adults in the United States. The goals of the Children's Book Council are to make the reading and enjoyment of children's books an essential part of America's educational and social goals; to enhance public perception of the importance of reading by disseminating information about books and related materials for young people and information about children's book publishing; to create materials to support literacy and reading encouragement programs; and to encourage the annual observance of Children's Book Week.

About my libraryOne of the best sources for browsing contemporary children's books is the CBC's own examination library. Open to the public, the library houses about 6,000 books, and for years it has been a resource for editors, authors, illustrators, and those who aspire to become part of children's publishing. The CBC library includes books published by our members in the current year, making it a fantastic resource for observing the most recent industry trends.

The Collection

Along with contemporary books, the CBC library has complete collections of major children's book award-winners, including:

• Mildred L. Batchelder Award
• Caldecott Medal and Honor books
• Coretta Scott King Award
• Newbery Medal and Honor books
• Michael J. Printz Award
• Robert F. Sibert Award

Along with these award-winning books, the CBC library houses a permanent collection containing volumes on the history of publishing, autobiographies and biographies of prominent industry figures, and a section devoted to books of interest to aspiring authors and illustrators. The CBC library carries subscriptions to industry trade and educational periodicals and member publishers' catalogs.

The CBC library is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m, though it is closed on holidays and occasionally for CBC events. Groups of more than three who wish to visit the CBC library are asked to telephone (212) 966-1990 first to ensure that there are no other groups visiting that day, as space is limited. Individuals are welcome whenever the library is open.
