National Display Contest - 15 Schools, Libraries and Bookstores Win 2017 Children’s Book Week Contest

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 In celebration of the 98th anniversary of Children’s Book Week, 705  libraries, schools, and bookstores were invited in May to enter a  national display contest around the theme of “One World, Many Stories.”

 Roswell Public Library is proud to be one of 15 winners of the 2017  Children’s Book Week Contest. In recognition of this award, the  Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, a nonprofit literacy  organization dedicated to inspiring reading by kids and teens, will  issue a national press release and award each location with books to  donate to a local charity.

 Roswell Public Library will be giving  28 children’s books – a selection of the 28 Children’s and Teen Choice  Book Awards – to Roswell Children, Youth, and Families Department (CYFD)  and the Assurance Home, Inc..

 As Shaina Birkhead, Programming and Strategic Partnerships Director for  Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, stated: “It is always  so wonderful to see locations visually express the themes and  excitement of Children’s Book Week in their displays. This year gave us  some of the best ones yet and we are grateful for the time and  creativity that teachers, librarians, and booksellers put into these  displays. Congrats to all the winners!”
