CCYAL believes that literature is essential to the intellectual, social, emotional, and aesthetic development of young people. Guided by this belief, it is the mission of the Center to celebrate and promote literature and to encourage reading through outreach to children and their parents, to current and future teachers and librarians, to members of the community, and to scholars and thinkers across disciplines.
