(CHICAGO) Librarians and library staff are transforming lives by connecting youth with materials that educate, inspire and foster lifelong learning.

The American Library Association (ALA) will reveal the next classics in children’s and young adult literature during its Youth Media Awards at 8 a.m. MT, Feb. 12, 20l8, from Denver, Colorado.   Libraries, schools and book lovers from around the globe will follow the action live through ALA social media channels and the live webcast at http://ala.unikron.com/2018 .   

Recognized worldwide for the high quality they represent, the ALA Youth Media Awards, including the prestigious Coretta Scott King Book, Caldecott, Newbery and Printz Awards, guide parents, educators, librarians and others in selecting the best materials for youth. Award winners rarely go out of print and stay on library shelves for decades to come.

Fans can view ALA Youth Media Award results in real-time by following hashtag #alayma, or Facebook live stream @AmericanLibraryAssociation.

A complete list of award winners will post to the ALA Youth Media Awards webcast page immediately following the live broadcast.  An encore presentation of the 2018 announcements will be available at the same location later in the day.
