Letter from the Editor

The May issue of our newsletter is my favourite to put together, because it’s always jam-packed with exciting news about the awards and grants that we’ve recently handed out. And it’s also the first issue after our Annual Meeting of Members in late February, which wraps up our activities over the past year. After the meeting, IBBY embarks on a new year, and I think we all leave with a bit of New Years excitement for what’s ahead.

If you have a chance, swing by our new website. The design has been updated and streamlined, and it’s looking great! And you can now follow IBBY International on Twitter at @IBBYINT. It’s a great way to stay in touch with our activities outside of Canada.

Happy spring!
