Welcome to Coretta Scott King Book Awards Round Table (CSKBART)

Dear American Library Association Colleagues, 

January 2022, ALA Council voted to approve the Coretta Scott King Book Awards petition to become an official Round Table of the American Library Association. We are grateful to everyone for their support of this endeavor! The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Round Table (CSKBART) will officially commence operations September 1, 2022. If you signed our petition or are interested in becoming a member of CSKBART, please bookmark this page for upcoming announcements.  

"Thank you", to those who attended ALA Annual 2022, Washington, D.C., and supported the  53rd Annual Coretta Scott King Book Awards Breakfast Ceremony which was held Sunday, June 26th from 7:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Tickets were sold out for this event.  The Awards ceremony was a great success!
