With 162 nominations, the library-based CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway programs are operating on diversity guidance from a survey of past selections.
In a ‘Library Week’ competition from the UK’s CILIP, library supporters build their visions of the future in Lego and head for a festival this weekend.

Both the winning illustrator and author are given more than $600 in books to donate to their local libraries, as well as more than $6,300 in cash.
