What we do

The Friends of the CCBC support the work of the CCBC in many ways, including

  • Publication of the annual CCBC Choices booklet
  • Financial support for the Charlotte Zolotow Award and sale of its seals and notecards
  • Support for the Charlotte Zolotow Lecture. Lecturers have included Yuyi Morales, Jason Reynolds, Leonard Marcus, Paul Fleischman, Rita Williams Garcia, Jaqueline Woodson and many others
  • Gifts to enhance the visual and working environment of the library, including artwork framing, a custom-made exhibit case, furniture, and more

The Friends also hold one or more book sales per year to raise funds for their events and programs.
