Real Award Committee Has Openings


The Association of Jewish Libraries' Sydney Taylor Book Award committee has three open spaces coming up for the 2022 and 2023 award years. Committee members chosen will serve from January 2021 through the June 2023 AJL conference. Each year, committee members will read 120+ picture books, Middle Grade and YA of Jewish content and score them. Committee members will also attend all AJL conferences during their term, and all meetings called by the committee chair. 

You do not need to be an AJL member to apply, however being a committee member is contingent upon AJL membership.
