Youth Libraries Group Scotland (YLGS) invites you to a celebration of reading:
- Enjoy cake, nibbles and wine
- Nominate books for the Carnegie & Greenaway awards
- Win prizes
…and it is free!
This event is aimed at people with an interest in promoting reading for pleasure to children and young people.
The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards. Often described by authors and illustrators as ‘the one they want to win’ – they are the gold standard in children’s literature.
The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people. The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people.
Come along and take part in discussions about the books on our shortlists, and vote for your favourite. The titles with the most votes will be put forward as the YLGS nominations.
It is not necessary to have read all the titles before attending as we will have the books there and each will be championed by a different YLGS member.
This is a relaxed, fun event with a focus on what we love the most – great books!
As with all YLGS events there will be lots of laughs and excellent snacks!
This event will be held in room 14.25 of the Computing and Information Sciences Department in Livingstone Tower at Strathclyde University, with stunning views over the city.
