What- The Association of Children’s Librarians of Northern California (ACL) invites students of children’s librarianship and/or children’s literature to apply for one of up to three annual membership fellowships. Discover a network of active Bay Area children’s librarians who meet monthly to share their passion for children’s literature and libraries.
