The final day of the 2019 Midwinter Meeting in Seattle brought the Youth Media Awards announcements, Isha Sesay, adding up all the books you grabbed from the exhibits hall, and traveling home.
We started the day bright and early with the Youth Media Awards.

If you didn’t become Cognotes famous this Midwinter, there was always a last chance to become Twitterboard famous!

#alamw19 @IamIshaSesay in the world today you can be a bystander or an upstsnder. If you are standing to the side, or ignoring what is happening, you are still taking a stand. Is it the side you want to choose?

Finally it was time to see what books you grabbed that your patrons would be excited to read soon.

…with all those books we begin to wonder—how do you make room in your suitcase for them?
Now that the conference is over, it’s time to appreciate all the new things you learned and the wonderful people you met. We’ll see you at Annual in D.C.!
Thank you ALA for another great Midwinter Conference. I love learning from and being inspired by my fellow librarians! #alamw19
