Thank You

I would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all YALSA members. The results of the 2007 election are in, and -- drum roll, please -- I am a member of the Michael L. Printz Committee!! This is the Committee that will select the 2009 winner, so I don't start reading until 2008.

Congratulations to all; but a special shout-out to my fellow New Jersey librarians, Sarah Cornish Debraski who is Vice President/ President Elect, and new Margaret A. Edwards Committee member Sharon Rawlins.

I cannot find the ALSC election results, but will edit and post once I do.

The ALSC Election results. Once again, congratulations to all, with a special shout out to Ed Spicer, (09 Caldecott Committee) and to NJ librarian Carol K. Phillips (09 Sibert Committee Chair.)

Congratulations, Liz. That's terrific! I know you were really hoping for that.

You have half a year to rest your eyeballs. Or maybe you should be putting them through extra calisthenics--not sure which.

I'm happy for you. I look forward to hearing about the process (what you're allowed to reveal, of course).

Thank you all!

And I have no idea what's up with the pot post & find it very amusing to be on a post about teen & kids books.

For those of you going "huh," the deleted post is spam. About pot. No, not the kind you cook with.

Yay! I'm so happy your voice is going to be heard--basically, I'm a fan of anyone who quotes Buffy getting a voice in deciding what makes for great literature!
