Mock Children's Book Award Elections

At its annual midwinter meeting, the American Library Association announces a wide variety of book awards.

Each year, the Allen County Public Library holds mock elections before the Newbery, Sibert, and Caldecott Awards are officially announced. The final reading lists for our Mock Elections are now available! Take a look at our Mock Caldecott, Mock Newbery, and Mock Sibert lists.

If you are in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area, we’d love to have you join one or all of our discussions of these books to be held on January 7th and 14th. Call Children’s Services at 260.421.1220 to register.

We are also offering an online discussion board for participants to share their thoughts on the various books under consideration. You may participate in any of the online discussion boards without signing up for the Mock Elections.

To join the online discussion, visit our online discussion boards at the Mock Sibert discussion, the Mock Newbery discussion, or the Mock Caldecott discussion.

Join us in reading some great books and sharing some fun conversation!

I am looking forward to all the Mock Election programs. It's great to get together with others who are readers of literature for children.

Plus, the Mock Caldecott is taking place at the Art Museum on Main Street, so those who attend will get a chance to view the illustrations of Kadir Nelson--a Children's book illustrator whose work is currently on display.
