22nd Annual Picture Book Read-In

SWON's Picture Book Read-In is a program for Collection Development staff, Children's Librarians, Teachers, Childcare Workers, in short, anyone who selects and/or reads books for children. We have thousands of recent titles (usually from the last two years) loaned to us for this event from six leading public library systems. Each attendee receives a guide listing all of the books. 

The day includes time for selecting and binge-reading picture books, discussing possible story time options with your peers and two presentations.

  • Reader's Advisory for Children's Literature
