PSLA Conference – Thank You!

It’s hard to believe that the 2015 PSLA Conference has already come and gone.  We had a blast attending sessions, seeing old friends and meeting new ones, visiting with vendors, sharing the Top 40 books of 2014 with all of you, and hearing from PYRCA winners Aaron Reynolds and Katherine Applegate, along with the awesome kids who presented the awards.  Thank you all very much for attending the Best of the Best in Children’s Literature session, the author session with Katherine Applegate and Aaron Reynolds, and the YA Top 40 session.  We hope you had as much fun at the sessions as we did.  We look forward to another great year of reviews to help with collection development and participation in the PA Young Reader’s Choice program.  Check back regularly for updates on the 25th anniversary of PYRCA and new reviews of amazing fiction and nonfiction for students grades K-12.  Remember, you can always contact us at with questions or concerns.


Thank you all for your continued support and involvement with the PSLA Media Selection and Review committee.  We love what we do: reading books and making sure student throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have the best resources available to them.


Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your school year.
