2014 ALA Youth Media Awards

ALA Medals and Seals: Best Bling EverEight a.m., Monday morning and ALA’s 2014 Youth Media Awards were being announced to an overflow crowd of enthralled librarians and book lovers in Philadelphia. And where was I? I was in Philadelphia, too—in my hotel room, watching the proceedings on a frequently failing feed, tweeting my fingers off, trying to keep @Booklist_Keir separate from @ALA_Booklist while simultaneously finding links, making them public, and dutifully remembering to add the #alayma and #alamw14 hashtags to every tweet. Meanwhile, back in Chicago, Sarah Hunter was dutifully sharing on Facebook, then compiling the awards, linking them to Booklist reviews, and tagging the reviews in the Booklist Online database. Don’t let our toil be in vain—please, follow these links to read our reviews of these award-winning books, audiobooks, and videos!
