Looking for the very best picture books to share with young children…as gifts or in the classroom? Collections manager Betsy Bird and children’s librarian/picture book selector Brian Wilson will (energetically) discuss the titles that they consider the year’s greatest and brightest. Betsy will talk about the books that have made her cheer, and Mr. Brian will offer his annual countdown of his storytime favorites. Also there will be a special presentation from award-winning author/illustrator extraordinaire Matthew Cordell who will be talking about one of 2017’s most fantastic books…one that he created (which one? you will have to attend to find out!). No registration required. Please note that this is not a storytime program for children.
