ALA visits Seattle!

Youth MediaPush to Talk would like to give a shout out to the nearly 10,000 library professionals coming to Seattle this weekend for the American Library Association’s Midwinter Conference held at the Washington State Trade & Convention Center.

Librarians from all over the country and world are coming to discuss how to improve library services and engage better with their communities. Authors and publishers will talk about their upcoming titles.  As a Teen Librarian though, one of the things I’m most looking forward to is the Youth Media Awards which will be announced on Monday morning.  You’ve probably been assigned to read a book that won the Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, or Coretta Scott King Book Awards at some point in your education. Well, if you’re curious about who will get the honors for 2013, you can watch the webcast starting at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
 
Be warned Seattle Teens.  Librarians from all over the country and world might sit next to you on a bus asking questions about what you’re reading or what to do in Seattle.  Let’s give them a warm welcome and show them why Seattle is always voted as one of the most literate cities in the country!  🙂

You might be saying to yourself,  “Yeah right, I tried to comment before, and it didn’t work.  Why would I try that again?”  I have good news for you.  The commenting feature is fixed.  We were waging a spam war, but the war has been won, and commenting is back.
