As we await this year's American Library Association Awards for children's literature, Spring Lake students are participating in their own mock Caldecott Award Competition as we evulate the illustrations in three eligible books.
- Students are allowed to check out one book at a time.
- There are no late fees, but students may lose take home priviledges with their teacher if books are not returned in a timely manner.
- Books are due back to the library after one week, but can be renewed multiple times.
- Care should be taken to maintain the condition of library materials.
