Children’s literature collections in academic libraries present a unique opportunity for librarians to develop engaging out- reach programs for students, faculty, and community mem- bers. The Curriculum Resource Center at Bowling Green State University’s Wm. T. Jerome Library has developed several popular events that both promote the collection and the cen- tral mission of creating a culture of reading. In this case study, three of the most successful endeavors – Mock Caldecott, April Madness, and Sneak Peek - are highlighted to provide insight into how we integrate our carefully developed collec- tion into programs that inspire excitement and build commu- nity around reading.
