Children’s Illustrated Books

Illustration students were recently treated to a talk by Martha Lee, CSAD’s Academic Librarian, about her experience as a member of the judging panel for the CILIP (The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) Carnegie and Kate Greenaway children’s book awards.

The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people.

The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people.

We have a few of the shortlisted books in the library now, alongside other illustrated children’s books. They are currently on display on the 2nd floor at Llandaff Library and can be borrowed.
