Each year, YALSA and Baker and Taylor give away two grants of up to $1,000 for a librarian to attend ALA Annual Conference for the first time. Seattle librarian Laurie Amster-Burton won the Baker & Taylor Grant in 2009. In this podcast, she shares her experience at ALA Annual, including attending events, going to the exhibits, meeting teens and other YALSA members, and more.
In addition to the Baker & Taylor grants, YALSA gives more than $40,000 in grants and awards to its members each year. Learn more and apply by Dec. 1 at www.ala.org/yalsa/awards&grants.
