About

We are pleased to announce that this year's Spring Festival of Children's Literature will be held in-person following all state, county, and university COVID-19 protocols. Masks will be required at all times during this event. Each year, we pack the house full of librarians, educators, parents and students who come to Frostburg State University’s campus to share their love of children’s literature, and to learn more about successful ways to share that love with children. In the “share and learn” atmosphere of the Spring Festival, adults who direct children’s learning interact first-hand with authors and illustrators, who bring characters to life and inspire children to read. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to engage in Professional Development Workshops in which strategies will be shared amongst each other. For more information and updates regarding the Spring Festival of Children's Literature, please check the CLC website and Facebook page.
