Participation Points

Like last year, you get a participation point for blogging each month.  At least one post in a month = one point.  You can earn additional participation points by reading an award winning list in its entirety.  Below are some of the ALA lists.  Any list will be considered and points will be assigned by our points professional (Patrick).
