Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award
The Central Library is closed due to a suspected gas leak. All other locations are open regular hours. We expect to be open as usual tomorrow, Wednesday, December 11.
The Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award, administered by the Youth Services Community of Interest of MLA, is presented annually to the author and illustrator of the picture book voted most popular by preschool children in Missouri's public libraries. Designed to encourage reading aloud to children from birth through kindergarten age, the award was first given in 1996.
