CRT

Promoting and improving libraries services to children and young people.

Welcome to the Children’s Round Table (CRT)! Our goal is to promote and improve library service to children and young people, and to support those who serve them. We do this in three ways:

  • High quality book awards
  • Engaging programs at annual conference
  • Professional development through scholarship, recognition, and volunteer opportunities

Volunteer

Our members are librarians like you – working year-round to fulfill these goals and CRT is more than just amazing author panels at conference. We work all year to support our members as we grow together in our profession.
