ALA Midwinter 2013

Early morning meetings #alamw13

I’m usually not a morning person, but today I was up and running by 6:00 a.m.  (It helps that my body is still on Eastern Standard Time.) The day started with a 6:30 a.m. meeting of the Pura Belpré Celebracií³n committee. Good food and good company. I highly recommend that you join REFORMA: The National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish Speaking. It’s a great cause and the dues are only $30 a year. The recipients of the Pura Belpré Award will be announced tomorrow morning. I can hardly wait!


Next it was off to the Library Service to Population Children and Their Caregivers Committee. After a year of corresponding by email, it was so great to meet everyone in person. We will soon  be announcing the winner of the ALSC/Candlewick Press “Light the Way” Grant. Stay tuned!

    Hi Sandra, thanks for your interest in the Light the Way: Library Outreach to the Underserved Grant. The winner will be announced very soon after the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting. The committee will be putting out a press release and we’ll share that information here and via the ALSC-L electronic discussion list.
