Caroline Ward's energetic enthusiasm for books and children is contagious. In 36 years of library service to children, no librarian, student, or child who has heard her tell a story, give a booktalk, lead a discussion group, or teach a children's literature class is likely to have forgotten the experience. While Ward is cheerfully offhand about her accomplishments, it is the solid substance and determination behind her efforts that make her a perfect choice for the 2005 Grolier Foundation Award, honoring a librarian who has made "extraordinary contributions" to encouraging a love of reading and books in young people. The lifetime achievement award, which is sponsored by Grolier, an imprint of Scholastic Library Publishing, comes with a $1,000 prize.
