We're honoured and thrilled. . .

. . . that the Dewey Divas and Dudes are this year's recipient of the Ontario Public Library Association's Leadership in Adult Readers' Advisory Award. It's a tremendous honour for us and we thank the OPLA Readers' Advisory committee and all the libraries who have hosted us and welcomed us so warmly over the years (and have even baked us cookies!). As publishers, we know that there is no group within the industry that is more enthusiastic and passionate about books than librarians and we sincerely thank you for all you do to promote reading and great books every single day!

Congrats also goes out to Linda Ludke from London Public Library who won the OPLA's Children's Librarian of the Year Award and Dinah Gough from Oshawa Public Library who won the OPLA's Excellence in Youth Services Award.
