Our mission is to create, identify, and advocate for the highest quality literature for all children from infancy through adolescence.  We ensure that such literature is readily accessible to every child, and to foster in parents, educators, and policy makers a commitment to the principle that good literature is fundamental to literacy. The Center will provide workshops, guides and content for learning and social-emotional/ aesthetic development at all levels of childhood education.

The components of the Center are the Children’s Book Committee, Irma Simonton and James H. Black Award, The Cook Prize, BookFest@ Bank Street, and the Writers Lab.  The Center is housed in the Bank Street College Library. The Library has a circulating collection of more than 68,000 children’s books.
