Recommended Viewing - Movies and DVDs

Q. I know ALA has reading lists in different age groups. But what about lists for other materials? Does ALA make a list of recommended movies or DVDs? And are there lists for different age groups?

A. Similar to the ALA Recommended Reading page, there is an ALA Recommended Viewing page, which links to the longtime Notable Children's Videos list and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children's Video of ALSC (Association of Library Service to Children, a division of ALA) as well as the Fabulous Films for Young Adults of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association, a division of ALA), along with the annual Notable Videos for Adults list prepared by ALA's Video Round Table.

See the Public Performance Rights page on the ALA Professional Tips Wiki if you have questions about showing videos to a group in your library or school.
