Of special interest to Children & Young Adult Librarians is the WLA/Highsmith Award. Libraries of any size or type are eligible for the award, which "recognizes a library's achievement in planning and implementing an exemplary program or service that has had a measurable impact upon its users. The purpose is to encourage innovation by highlighting collective efforts within a library, wherein staff, administration and volunteers have successfully marshaled the library's resources to benefit its users." The award winner receives $1000. The application deadline is June 1. For more information visit http://www.wla.lib.wi.us/awards/awardprocedures.htm.
