Quote of the Week:
"The CCBC has played a huge part in teaching me how to think about and talk about children's books. I am a more sensitive reader and more aware of the imperative to build a collection that reflects the diversity of our world than I might otherwise have been."
Laura, School Librarian
The Cooperative Children's Book Center opened its doors for the first time on June 23, 1963, in its original location under the dome on the fourth floor of the Wisconsin State Capitol. We'll be celebrating 50 years of the CCBC through the next several months with displays, presentations and lectures, and other events. We'll also be sharing memories and wishes for the future from current and former CCBC patrons and staff. Stay tuned to this page for updates on anniversary events throughout the year.
