YMA audience gathering
Getting ready for the YMAs!

Just got back from the YMAs, and it was just as wonderful/exciting/thrilling/heartwarming as I had hoped. It is such a thrill to see these talented authors, illustrators, narrators, and librarians honored for the work that they do. The atmosphere in the room was amazing, exploding with excitement and passion. As each winner and honoree was announced, I heard shouts, clapping, exclamations of “Yes!,” “Perfect!,” “I’m so glad!.” What an overwhelmingly positive atmosphere. When I attend the YMAs, I’m reminded again of how much I love being part of the good work that we do as librarians. Congratulations to all on a job well done!
