Press Release
For over 40 years, Nell Colburn has been a joyful, calm, and effervescent presence in the Oregon library world. She is rightly called "The Book Fairy" by children in Multnomah County who have had her share stories, rhymes and songs with them. Her goal of putting not just any book, but really great books in the hands of children resulted in her co-coordinating the Raising a Reader program in Multnomah County for many years. The Raising a Reader program partners with over 400 early childcare classrooms and reaches approximately 40,000 children, parents, teachers, and caregivers every year. Nell has also been the story time training coordinator for Multnomah County for over ten years, providing library staff with the tools and training needed for consistent excellence in story times throughout Multnomah County. In 2009, Nell served on the Caldecott Committee and together with her committee helped select the best illustrated book of the year, The House in the Night, illustrated by Beth Krommes. Nell also co-wrote an early literacy column for School Library Journal for over nine years, reaching a national audience of librarians. Nell has a high standard of excellence with the distinction of being the easily recognized and remembered 'Book Fairy', bringing stories to life for children and their caregivers.
