Follow Friday - ALA awards on Monday!

Our Follow Friday today is really a Follow Monday, because Monday is a BIG day for children's books. The new award winners for the Caldecott, Newbery, and others will be announced on Monday, January 10th at 7:45 a.m. PST.

Each year the American Library Association (ALA) honors books and media for children and teens. Recognized worldwide for the high quality they represent, the ALA Youth Media Awards guide parents, educators, librarians and others in selecting the best materials for youth. Selected by committees composed of librarians and other literature and media experts, the awards encourage original and creative work in the field of children’s and young adult literature and media. The award announcements are made as part of the ALA Midwinter Meeting, held in 2011 at the San Diego Convention Center from January 7 to 11.
