is awarded to you for your tireless work on one the more laborious and repetitive task of adding award-winning titles to the Coretta Scott King Award page, from ErinHowarth (talk) 00:21, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that the source you used Coretta Scott King Award Recipients is more complete than the source used previously Chronological List. Both sources are from the ALA, EMIERT, so I'm very curious about the difference. Do you have any idea why the one is less complete than the other? --ErinHowarth (talk) 00:21, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Children's Literature Roll Call[edit]

Message from WikiProject Children's literature[edit]

I have recently proposed some extensive changes to the layout of project pages in WikiProject Children's literature. The changes can be viewed in my sandbox, and are summarised on this talk page. The proposed changes include major reformatting of the main project page, the creation of five new project sub-pages, and moves to two existing sub-pages. Please look over these proposals, and join the discussion. strdst_grl (call me Stardust) 10:37, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Just come go over to the main Newsletter page to see where you can help out, and of course, as always, please give us your feedback on this edition, on the talk page.
