Open House & Galley Giveaway

Our  Open House & Galley Giveaway was a great success this year. Thank you to anyone who stopped by! For information about other galley giveaways throughout the year, see our Ongoing Events page.

Things that greet you upon your arrival at the Open House:Boxes of galleys sorted by age group at the CCB Open House and Galley Giveaway.

  • FREE galleys! Help us clear out our storage closets by taking home all the pre-publication and advanced copies of books that you can carry. The Galley Giveaway begins the night of our Open House and continues until supplies run out. You will find a mix of books that includes both fiction and non-fiction, picture books, easy readers, early chapter books, middle grade, and young adult books.
  • Apple cider and doughnuts from Curtis Orchard!

This is a chance to converse with CCB staff and youth services faculty and learn about the range of School of Information Sciences-sponsored activities and programs for students, faculty, librarians, teachers, researchers, and community members who share an interest in literature and media for children and young adults. There will be a short presentation before the Galley Giveaway that will introduce you to the various units that comprise Room 24 including the Center for Children’s Books and the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books.
