ALA 2012: Day Four

June 26, 2012

Last day of the conference!

We spent most of our morning in the exhibit hall, since it would be closing that day. Although I was tempted by the frenzied price dropping, I only bought a few books, mostly some children’s titles.

After a snack, we went to Battledecks. I had first attended Battledecks at CLA 2011, but many of my friends were uninitiated. Battledecks pits librarians against each other as they try to give a coherent presentation on 12 never-before-seen slides in 4 minutes. It was a fabulous program, and definitely a fun way to wrap up the weekend.

After that, we went to the Printz Awards! Given to the best YA book of each year, the books tend to be big hits with YA librarians and readers. We got to hear speeches from all of the honor authors, as well as the winner, John Corey Whaley. It was exciting and inspiring, and a wonderful final event!
