Hello 259 librarians! So glad to be a small part of your in-service today. I’m thrilled that so many of my diverse, #ownvoices favorites from the past year have won so many awards and that we had the chance to talk about them together today.

Thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your annual conference! I am so happy to share some books with you and to talk about how public libraries support the important work you’re doing in schools and in the classroom.
