Group Pages

Welcome to CLEAR - Cincinnati

You may join at any time and your dues will cover one full year. To pay your dues click here.

CLEAR is a group of school and public library staff serving children who meet regularly to review and share information about new children's books, which are provided by publishers via SWON.

There are several CLEAR groups facilitated by SWON. School and Public Library Staff who serve children are welcome to join any of our CLEAR groups. Can't attend any of our existing groupsContact us for more information on forming your own CLEAR group.

This group meets in or around Cincinnati, OH.

Convener: 
Jennifer Vickey, Children’s Librarian, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Jennifer.Vickey@cincinnatilibrary.org

 

How it works:

These books are aimed at the target audience of children birth through age 11. At each meeting reviews of the last meeting's books are shared orally. Members then get to choose books to read and review for the next meeting.

The number of books provided to you is based on the number of reviewers registered for the meeting on our website and the number of books received from the publishers. Reviews are shared with the publishers and are a requirement of participation.

Members get to keep the books that they review. Many of the reviewers add the books to their library's collection, adding close to $1,000 worth of books to their shelves on a yearly basis. However, members are also welcome to keep the books for themselves, or distribute them in any way they choose.

Cost


If you are a publisher and would like to be included in our review process, please contact the SWON Libraries office at (513) 751-4422 or email us.
