Last night the American Library Association presented its Youth Media Awards, the most famous of which are the Newbery Medal and the Caldecott Medal. See the full list of winners at this link. I am delighted that the current selection for the 5th-grade book club, The War that Saved My Life, received a Newbery Honor!

To Night Owl from Dogfish,

"Americans went to the library an average of 10.5 times in 2019, beating out trips to movie theaters, sporting events, national parks, museums, and zoos. According to a new Gallup poll, libraries were almost twice as popular as movie theaters and ten times as popular as zoos."
