It's Almost Time for Our Discussion and Election!

I just emailed the following letter to all the people that are registered to participate in our Mock Sibert discussion this Saturday, January 17th:


I am excited that you will be joining us for our Mock Sibert discussion and election this Saturday, January 17th! The program will be held at the Main Library of the Allen County Public Library system. The address is 900 Library Plaza in downtown Fort Wayne. You can go to our website at for directions and parking information. We will plan to begin our program in the Orientation Room - also known as "The Globe Room" - at 2:00 PM. Each Indiana Librarian will receive one LEU for their attendance & participation in this program.

The general format of our program will consist of:
* Information about the Sibert Award
* Criteria used to select the Sibert winner and honor books
* Discussion guidelines
* Group discussion of the books on our list
* Balloting

Let me know if you have questions or concerns. I look forward to our discussion on January 17th!


If you thought you had signed up for the program and did not receive this letter via email, please send me an email; it's not too late to get you signed up!

If you are unable to participate in our "in-person" discussion, please feel free to add your comments to this blog... we'll make sure your voice is heard during our discussion on the 17th.
