Association of Children’s Librarians of Northern California

This is the official blog of the Association of Children’s Librarians of Northern California (ACL).  Find our official website, including information on becoming a member, here.

ACL was founded in the 1930s by a group of public and school librarians.  Members meet monthly to review books for young people and discuss related issues.

ACL reviews are published in BayViews, a journal of book reviews and opinions with a western perspective.
