Yesterday was a BIG day for books and libraries with the announcement of annual Book Awards. Our school library owns the new Caldecott 2013 Award winning book: “This Is Not My Hat,” illustrated and written by Jon Klassen, published by Candlewick Press.
The Association for Library Service to Children media awards are announced every January at a Monday morning press conference that takes place during the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting. ALSC website with award descriptions.

Hooray for books, authors and illustrators!
