LEUs Available for Attending Mock Election Programs at the ACPL

I am very happy to announce that Indiana librarians attending the Mock Newbery program in January will receive one LEU (Library Education Unit) for their participation. Woo-Hoo! Hopefully, this will encourage more librarians to become involved in this program.

Registration for the Mock Newbery Election program -- to be held on January 17th from 9:00 to 1:00 pm -- is now open; click here to register.

The Children's Services department is offering three additional Mock Election programs this year:

That's wonderful news! I'm so happy that the importance of keeping up with and discussing new children's literature are being recognized and encouraged in this way.

Man, I'm also disappointed that my subject/verb tense is incorrect in my previous comment. The importance IS being recognized.

Hi Mary

It's Kerry here, the Middle Grade Fiction organizer for the Cybils. I just wanted to leave a comment on the blog to see if you received my email yesterday regarding signing up for the Cybils database. If so, could you reply to my email so that I know you got it? Thanks!

Thanks for leaving a note, Kerry. Your email had been safely tucked away in my SPAM folder, but I retrieved it and replied. I'm looking forward to working with you!

This is awesome! This is clearly fun, but I'm glad this program is being recognized as being extremely beneficial for our patron base as well.
