      Sure! You can find them all on the ALA website under “press releases”, but it’s a lot to wade through. I thought it would be nice to put the major ones into a single post. Glad you enjoyed it!

    It would be so nice if I had time to read all these too. My kids would enjoy some of these too. Thanks for sharing!
