Friends of the CCBC

2015: The Friends now have their own web site!

This active organization with over 350 members publishes the annual CCBC Choices publication, sponsors programs to develop public appreciation for children's literature, and provides funds for many additional projects at the Cooperative Children's Book Center. Anyone interested in children's and young adult literature is welcome to join.

The Friends also publish a newsletter twice a year that provides information on current Friends activities as well as what is happening at the CCBC.

The Friends hold a book sale twice a year to raise money for their activities.

Other Friends activities have included:

  • Programs in Madison featuring speakers such as Ellen Raskin, Madeleine L'Engle, Katherine Paterson, George Shannon, Patricia McKissack, Margaret Mahy, Vera B. Williams, Gary Paulsen, Jean Fritz, Lois Ehlert, Jean Little, Arnold Adoff, Sharon Creech and Lois Lowry
