ALA Midwinter 2013

Today’s the Day! #alamw13

The ALA Youth Media Awards will be announced this morning! There will also be a live webcast available. If you can’t be there in person and are not able to join the webcast, you can still follow results in real-time by logging on to the ALA Youth Media Awards Facebook page, or via Twitter by following hashtag #ALAyma. The program begins at 8:00 am PT. This is always a highlight of the Midwinter Conference for many, many children’s librarians. I can almost hear Seattle buzzing with discussions of favorite children’s books as librarians prepare to attend the announcements of the awards. The announcements are less than two hours away! Time to grab a quick breakfast and head to the Convention Center.
