There is an inherent tension in the U.S. Constitution between  “the general welfare” and “the blessings of liberty.” In the face of these seemingly opposite propositions, how can American democracy support solutions for such significant problems? “

From an article that originally appeared in the March 16, 2021, issue of DPI-ConnectEd.

The Cooperative Children’s Book Center, a part of UW Madison – School of Education and partially supported by the Department of Public Instruction, recently released their CCBC Choices best-of-the-year list. Librarians of the Cooperative Children’s Book Center are recommending 257 books published in 2020, out of the nearly 3,000 books they received.

The CCBC is a non-circulating research library for anyone interested in children’s and young adult literature. The CCBC receives almost every children’s and young adult book from the publishing industry in the United States each year. CCBC librarians have read, cataloged, and written the recommendations for the best-of-the-best books since 1980. The CCBC has also been documenting books by and about Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) it has received since 1994 and is an authoritative national source on tracking diversity in children’s and young adult literature.

The CCBC is located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus at the corner of Mills and Dayton Streets, in the Teacher Education Building. Although closed during the pandemic, the CCBC is usually open to the public. Librarians and teachers looking for children’s and young adult book recommendations can email for more information (ccbcinfo at education.wisc.edu).
