Plus, this year for the first time, children's book awards from American Indian Library Association(AILA)Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA), and the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL) will be included in the announcements!

All these awards and more will be announced at the gala American Library Association Youth Media Awards (YMA) press conference Monday January 28 beginning at 10am CST (8am PST)) sharp! The announcements are always done on a Monday at the ALA Midwinter Conference (this year in Seattle) as a culmination of all the award committees' hard work and decision-making over the previous few days (after a BIG year of reading and reflection)!

Wait, you won't be at ALA Midwinter? No problem at all.

You can watch the live webcast here  (sponsored by Baker and Taylor) and experience the electric excitement or follow the hashtag #alayma. You also can join I Love Libraries pajama party with prizes and fun happening during the livestream.
