Children Collections Crash Course: Nonfiction

Wednesday, May 5th from 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Whether young patrons are looking for information for school projects, instructions for hobbies, or fascinating leisure reading, nonfiction collections get heavy traffic, and the field of informational books for kids is more varied and vibrant than ever before. Children’s librarians excel at staying on top of their fiction collections, but it can be hard to keep up with developments in nonfiction format, prize-winning titles, and all the offerings from trade and educational publishers.

Nonfiction is a gateway to lifelong reading for many children, and young readers crave quality informational books. Join children’s librarian and author Rebecca Donnelly for a new look at nonfiction.

In this informative program, participants will learn:

  • Which prize lists to keep an eye out for to easily update your nonfiction collection
  • How to recommend nonfiction by format for different reading tastes
  • Ways to highlight your nonfiction collection through programming
  • How to evaluate nonfiction for dated content
