Yes, it may feel as though Annual Conference just ended, but applications for the 2017 Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award are already open! What is the Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award, you might ask? The Penguin Random House Young Readers Group Award provides for up to four children’s librarians to attend their first ALA Annual Conference and the Caldecott-Newbery-Wilder banquet.
There’s been a lot of discussion about media mentorship, especially with the popularity of Pokémon GO. How can libraries help families and children learn how to make smart and safe media decisions?
Where did you first hear about ALSC? What – or who – convinced you to join? For many, their first encounter with our association was with a member at an event or conference.
ALSC is seeking representatives to serve the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY).
Another year, another Conference – thanks to everyone who made it great, especially our lovely livebloggers! Here’s a roundup of the week’s blog posts.
It’s almost time for the 2016 ALA Annual Conference! This year’s conference will be held on June 23-28, in sunny Orlando. With hundreds of speakers, sessions, exhibits, and events, it can be hard to know where to go, especially for new members.
