Attention teachers, librarians and parents: The Bedford Library is conducting a very important election... on Caldecott worthy picture books. Come to the Branch and join us in a mock election nominating your favorite 2011 books as Caldecott award winners. We'll have lunch, choose top "candidates" and then vote to see which titles Monroe County thinks could be Caldecott winners.

Leading up to the Mock Election we'll be having online voting on our Facebook page. Look for two new polls every week!
