If you answer "yes" to these two questions, you are ready to go! Visit the Coretta Scott King Book Awards Community on ALA Connect and join in on the conversation. Once logged in, simply click "Join" in the left of the banner and become an official part of the community. 

Once you are part of the Connect Group, you will have the opportunity discuss ways you have used the Coretta Scott King Book Awards in your community, share news, and share ideas you have to spread the word.
