I have my bundled registration and hotel reservations for MidWinter. I love being able to do registration and hotel reservations in one smooth visit to the ALA web site. So, are you coming to Boston in January? Here is the best reason I know to be there:

This is where the press conference that announces all the media awards is LIVE! I cannot begin to describe the electricity in the air as the winners are announced. Where else can you see grown women and men jump and cheer or locate the various publishing houses in the audience when they applaud and scream with one voice?

Please come to Boston. Register now @ www.ala.org.

    There’s a lot of good stuff coming up in Boston. Along with the media awards, on Friday YALSA is sponsoring an institute titled Library 3.0: Teen Edition. Friday also brings the Friday night happy hour followed by the gadget showcase. You can find out more about what YALSA has going on at Midwinter in Boston on the YALSA wiki at http://wikis.ala.org/yalsa/index.php/YALSA_at_the_2010_ALA_Midwinter_Meeting.

    BTW, if you register for Midwinter and Annual using the bundled option, it’s not yet possible to register for special events like the Institute and gadget showcase. Registration for those events opens October 1. Make sure to keep the Friday events in mind as you make plans for travel and lodging.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone in Boston – Linda W. Braun, President, YALSA
