Objectives

The objectives of the Children’s Library Services Section shall be the active participation and scholarly interest in the enterprises undertaken by the Catholic Library Association, especially those pertaining to children's libraries, both school and public; the promotion of communication and mutual support among children's librarians; and the enhancement of library service to children through education, cooperation, and the exchange of ideas.

We hope that with the development of this website we may better benefit you in your library service to children and continue to foster a supportive community of members.

The Children’s Section sponsors three awards, the Regina Medal and the Philip F. Neau Memorial Award and (jointly with the High School/Young Adult Section) the Charlotte Decker Memorial Award. The 56th Regina Medal was awarded at this year’s past convention in Pittsburgh to Patricia Reilly Giff. Membership in CLA and to this section opens you to possible participation in these awards.

Members communicate not only through this website, but through our listserv CLACLS and newsletters. If you are not a member, please consider joining CLA today!

If you have any suggestions as to how our section may better serve you and your library service needs, please contact as we strive to expand our professional development and outreach services.
